Evesham Wood 2019 Pinot Noir Temperance Hill

2019 Evesham Wood
Pinot Noir Temperance Hill


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.

Year in year out our Temperance Hill bottling shows the distinct cedar and green tobacco notes distinct to that site.  However, the level of “Temperance notes” always varies.  This year the nose shows moderate to very “Temperance notes” of cedar and green tobacco on the nose followed by more restrained mid-palate than the other cru bottlings with red and sour cherry.
