TINHORN CREEK Pinot Noir 2013

See the wine detail page

91 Points

Tart berries and red cherry dominate the nose and are layered with red plum, tobacco, rainforest floor, cigar box and dried violets as it evolves in the glass. Tangy in the mouth - quite a bit of restraint here. Earthy flavours roll into red plum, cocoa, tealeaf and cherry, with spice trailing on a lengthy finish. Very good posture and balance. 

Pair: Salmon, savoury mushroom soup or funghi pizza, roasted beets, turkey or sausage.

About Wine Scores

What is a wine score and how do wine reviewers (I don’t refer to myself as a wine critic, I review wine, I don't criticize it) decide on that score?
A wine score is a numerical rating wine reviewers give to a wine based on a series of elements. Every wine reviewer (or wine critic) has their own method of getting to a conclusive number even if they use similar guidelines to one another.
