Seven Terraces Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir. This wine has medium-density to its color. It shows an intense nose of raspberries, black cherries, black Doris plums with spicy characters and complex earthy notes. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins and features sweet red fruits backed up by black pepper, cloves, and spice. The wine shows a great balance between fruit and oak and a well structured seamless palate with length on the finish.
