Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2010

Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2010

90 points

Bright medium red.  Pungent aromas of cherry, redcurrant and minerals.Concentrated, spicy and light on its feet, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of red berries, flowers and spices.  An herbal nuance gives the finish a positive bitterness.

Very suave, fresh pinot with plenty of life ahead of it.
