Dalrymple Pinot Noir 2014
The modest yields of 2014 coupled with a long warm dry Summer and Autumn produced intensity and depth from the Pinot Noir of Coal River Valley. The color is an immediate hint of this with deep crimson tones and purple hues. Initial aromas of blue flowers and dried herbs give way to fleshy dark cherries, rhubarb clafoutis and plum juice. The palate delivers on the aromatic promises, subtle entry and lively mid-palate but textured with a silkiness of tannins that comes from seasons like 2014.
