The only challenge with this McCutcheon Pinot Noir is that it is still so backward. It is, without a doubt, the most structured of the single vineyard releases. Here, the fruit tends towards dark cherry, the flavours cutting deeper into the wine and driving the palate along with its brooding intensity. Dark, muscular and sappy with drying tannins a centrepiece, this has an unmistakeable truffled complexity. Impressive wine, with an impressive future ahead.
