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!

Great, unbeatable prices. Just bought two bottles of the Isabel Estate Pinot Noir £17.21 each (one as a gold gift-pouch present for my partner's granddaughter to give to her father for Christmas - her name is Isabella). I bought two for the price of little more than one (£32) from M S and cancelled their order at the checkout when I discovered your wino-friendly website :). I left them a very pointed review on their exorbitant pricing. Keep up the good work. Will definitely buy more in due course.
