Review

No review for this vintage yet. Review for Fincher Show of Hands Pinot Noir 2018:

review Fincher Show of Hands Pinot Noir 2018Wine Orbit (Sam Kim): 94/100.  Sweetly ripe and beautifully perfumed, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, dark cherry, warm spice, thyme and almond notes. It's concentrated and richly textured on the palate with fabulous fruit purity combined with savoury undertones, backed by polished tannins, finishing wonderfully long and silky. At its best: now to 2028.

 

Tasting Note:

The wine shows aromas of rose petals, ripe cherry and cedar on the nose whilst the palate has layers of bright red fruit, wild thyme and earthiness. Silky and supple but with assertive tannins, the fresh acid gives the wine vibrancy to add to its serious fruit concentration and length.

Aromas and flavours:
