Rathjen Cellars Pinot Noir 2020

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaComplex drifts of blueberry, cherry, fruit leather, earthiness and dried clay on the nose. The savoury flavours are very subtle and drifting as well, with dried plum, plum skin, dried blueberries, cherry fruit leather, dried flowers, vanilla, and some baking spices. The texture is light and very ethereal with great fruit clarity, restrained alcohol, and a mellow fruit intensity. The exceptional balance and dreamy harmony of elements here show why the Saison Vineyard is so well regarded.Tasted: 22 August 2023Tasted by: Brent GushowatyPrices:
