had read good things about this producer and grabbed a bottle of the state monopoly´s shelves.
2012 County Line Pinot Noir
The nose is just what I looked for, a juicy, fresh nose with notes of frozen raspberries, rhubarb, forest floor and dried spices. Light but at the same time shows a nice depth. Very good.
The taste is easy going, young and fresh with notes of red currants, raspberries, liquorice and forest floor. It is a tad warm in the finish which I think will subside with age. It is good, it is easy to drink, it is very well made, but I had expected a bit more complexity for 30 Euro. Or am I just grumpy?
86p (tasted 2013/12)
