Napa Cellars Pinot Noir, Napa Valley 2012 $29

The colour is deep and bright, the bouquet fresh in dark-cherry aromas, the palate medium-full bodied. The flavour is properly ripe, with mid-palate sweetness and plenty of tannin adding structure. A little plain but has a future. It’s hard to believe that 26,000 cases were produced. Now to 2022. 14.3 per cent alcohol. 92/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: grilled lamb cutlets
