Wow, this wine is gaining weight rapidly - with a nose of brandied cherries/kirsch liqueur, violets and lavender.

Very lifted aromatics, indicating the power to come.

The palate, for a young Pinot Noir, is quite dense and full with flavours of spice and nutmeg, then a character of prosciutto ham is noticeable.

The finish is long and fruit driven with fine, dry tannins and a little minerality - unmistakable Isabel family resemblance.

This wine will reward you with further time in the cellar or, for us less patient, one hour in a decanter before indulging!
