- Tasting Notes
DELICATE and PERFUMED
A striking light berry red in colour. This ‘18 vintage reflects a lean and clean chassis offering a nose that floats berries and cherries ( plum, cherry, strawberry) components along with a savoury spiciness. Recurring forest black and red berry flavours make their mark enlivened with youthful tannin. Fashioned to give pleasure. Now…get back to your glass.
D’un belle couleur rouge rubis, notre pinot noir 2018 développe d’élégants arômes de fruits rouges, de cerise avec une très légère touche épicée. En bouche de belles saveurs de fraise des bois et de mûre soutenuent par une structure tanique tout en finesse. A boire frais cet été!

No time passes before realization sets in. This is not just more incredible lightness of PEC pinot noir being but a wondrous example of advanced and furthered. The chrestomathy is understood, from the excellence of these vineyards, this geology and what magic compels pinot noir into such a lithe and ethereal state. Others do so in the County in similar ways but Huff’s is the one to match the fantasy with perfectly dark fruit extracted reality. This has blessed commercial appeal and immense structure. The tannins are fine-spun, perfectly planar, parallel to the fruit and together they will travel in synch for many years. The tension on the finish seals the deal, on the edge of bitter and with that first sip still in mind. Drink 2019-2025. Tasted February 2017.

Ruby clour with a violet tint at the rim. Lifted black raspberry nose with oak spice and a light floral note. Medium-bodied, crispy dry, cranberry and sour cherry flavours; well-balanced and very Burgundian in style
