Pinot Noir, 2018, James Bryant Hill Estate, California
We loved the 2017, and then we tried the 2018 and it's even better! It's all plums and raspberries from this silky smooth Pinot Noir, and the subtle hint of sweet Vanilla is a dead giveaway of it's Californian heritage. We're not lying when we say it's the best Cali Pinot Noir you'll find!
The Four Point Lowdown
- Strawberries, and black and red cherries

About this wine
Fresh flavours of raspberry develop into a richer plummy note, like the kind you'd find in a crumble. The fresh fruit is balanced with a hint of sweet vanilla, which, all together, make for a seriously smooth and delicious wine.
People are often shocked by the price of this wine, as it tastes more expensive than it is. Its sumptuous and flexible too, it can be that warm hug you want by the fire in winter, but also, chill it down for 30 mins in summer and you're onto a winner. This wine is also vegan.
