SHAW + SMITH SHAW + SMITH - Pinot Noir  - 2016

SHAW + SMITH Pinot Noir 2016

See the wine detail page

95 Points

A decisive, confidently struck pinot that brims with youthful vibrance and plenty of brambly spicy overlay across ripe red and darker cherry fruits. The palate's succulent, energetic and stacked with punchy cherry-fruit flavors. Tannins drive up through the finish.
