"The 2019 Pinot Noir Hyland Vineyard comes from self-rooted vines planted in 1989. It was vinified with about 15% whole clusters and matured for 14 months. It has layered aromas of kirsch, pipe tobacco, tea leaves and Angostura bitters, offering something new with each return to the glass. Detailed and silky, the palate is bursting with waves of concentrated, nuanced fruit, energized by mouthwatering acidity, and it has a compellingly long finish with a fan of spicy accents."

"The 2019 vintage plays right into the hands of Evan Martin, winemaker for Martin Woods. The Hyland Pinot Noir is yet another example of his crafting a beautifully elegant wine—aromatics of black tea, dried thyme, forest floor and crushed stone. The palate is lively; fresh raspberry, fresh mint and eucalyptus flavours come together with plenty of fleshy umami. This is a delicious Pinot Noir and will lay down for a very, very long time.

"Bright ruby-red. Vibrant, spice- and mineral-accented cherry and black raspberry scents take on musky earth, floral and herb nuances as the wine opens up. Juicy, appealingly sweet red and blue fruit preserve and floral pastille flavors show firm tension and spicy back-end lift. The long, energetic finish echoes the cherry note and is framed by steadily building, nicely polished tannins." (JR)
