Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||Australia, Victoria, Yarra Valley|
This is a ripe and somewhat reductive Pinot. It eventually opens with time in glass, revealing red fruit wrapped in lots of oak spice. The fruit on the palate sits a bit heavily and tannins are lean and astringent, emphasizing the oak particularly at the finish. This straightforward Pinot is wanting for a bit of charm and brightness.
Toasted herb notes and hints of chive mingle with robust cherry and plum flavors, showing off some charry elements on the finish, with dusty tannins. Drink now. 3,800 cases imported.
