Kitsch 5 Barrel Pinot Noir 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaInitially, this has balanced scents of rich cherry, clove, nutmeg and sandalwood with a growing component of earthiness and underbrush. Later, plum skin, florals, blueberry, crushed green leaf, lilac, and marionberry emerge. The core has savoury cherry with juicy acidity, some earthiness, lightly taut tannins, with black and blue fruits predominating and an apparent, focused intensity through the finish. The texture stood out in an unfolding finishing sequence of flavour elements, including clay, plum, cherry, pomegranate, a touch of graphite, and elegant darker fruits. Showing well now but will repay keeping for another 2-5 years.Tasted: 06 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
