Paradigm Hill L’Ami Sage Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir

In steady hands, the 2011 vintage was capable of elegant and fragrant pinots of confident structure. Paradigm Hill released a wine not only worthy of its flagship status but one of the most ethereal under this label yet. Its fragrant allure is enticing, evoking memories of rose hip, bouquet garni, morello cherries and pink pepper. An elegant and textural palate speaks of pomegranates, red cherries and strawberries of elegant restraint, complemented neatly by fine, silky tannins with sufficient confidence to provide a decade of support. $52 at Purvis.
