2019 Evesham Wood Pinot Noir Cuvée J
Vintage 2019 offers some great news: We have examples of 2019 Pinot Noir’s from all our stellar vineyards and they are impressive. A beautiful balance was achieved leaning towards cooler vintage drinking wines with bright acidity, focus and elegance, but with some core ripe fruit mixed in. It’s no secret I prefer wines from cooler growing seasons, but the one downside to those wines is that they often need a few months to a year for the mid-palate to plump up and gain some wait. Not the 2019’s. Beautiful elegance combines with an instantly gratifying mid-palate. I think these may be very long-term aging wines as well.
This 6 barrel selection from Le Puits Sec is ready to go. As this blend is selected in part for it’s ageability it’s often quite shy on release. Not this year. The higher percentage of new oak that will integrate with age is quite apparent now mixed with wild berries, plum and violet leading to a refreshing finish with some grip.
