A fine-tuned, complex wine that offers a beautiful blend of cherry, spice, earth, herb, leather and coffee notes all framed in smooth, supple tannins. It’s elegant and refined, long on the finish and somewhat lush. A terrific wine from a relative newcomer, Nicole Abiouness.
From a Lebanese winemaker, a jammy Pinot tasting of cherries, blueberries, black raspberries and dusty oriental spices, especially clove. It is dry, with lively acids and silky tannins.
