From a consistently great producer, the 2015 Pipers River offers a wealth of aromas: sunbaked earth, dried leaves, sea spray, cocoa nibs and just-picked forest fruit. The palate is light and elegant, with soft but structured tannins and a cinnamon spice tone. It's totally approachable now but could age another five to seven years if you can bear to wait that long. Drink 2023–2025.
