The Affair Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

he Affair Pinot Noir is a refined style of Pinot Noir showcasing the love affair between the soft, feminine side of Pinot, being the floral notes, hints of spice and silkiness; and the masculine linear strength of the tannins, hints of oak and brooding dark forest floor aromas. The palate is both silky and textured, displaying a lovely roundness as well as soft, integrated tannins and length.
