Valentine Lonestar Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018


For me and not that I am out-spoken but this would be the best Pinot from this vineyard in 2018. A decent amount of depth and concentrated fruit notes of dark cherry and strawberry. There is also that signature cumquat/Campari note that we now look for as a rule from some of these Upper Yarra vineyards. Some texture from just the right amount of whole bunch and a slight salami note from initial wild ferment. So it’s complex and really very drinkable. I think Dom may be sick of me telling him but that won’t stop me.

$35 or 3 for $96 while stocks last
