Hamilton Russell 2018 Pinot Noir (Hemel-en-Aarde Valley)

There's a spicy character to the nose of this robust red, with notes of clove and whole peppercorn riding atop the crunchy cranberry, rhubarb and currant fruit profile. The palate is tense and sprightly in feel, with more of the same bright red fruit flavors, ample acidity and a moderate tannic structure that suggests this would benefit from some time to further mature and harmonize. The medium-length finish offers plenty of tannic grip and fruit-skin flavors. Enjoy through 2028. Lauren Buzzeo
