Charcoal Gully Pinot Noir

Big and black, just like its label, this is a Central pinot of full, vibrant purple hue and well-composed balance, offering unusual value for money for this part of the world. Its bouquet is adorned with expressive and intense aromas of dried flowers, spice, violets and black fruits of all kinds. The palate continues the fruit emphasis, yet retains its focus and poise, with fine tannin support, offering medium-term cellaring potential. $35 at Hunt for Wine.
