Pretty but concentrated aromas of rose petal, dark cherries, cocoa, anise and cardamom. Sweet cherry and plum entry with a zesty mid palate reminiscent of baking spices, leading into an elegant, lingering finish.
The richness of this wine pairs well with meats such as lamb, duck, and stewed curries, as well as artisanal cheeses and wild mushrooms.

Audrey Frick writes: The first of the reds, the 2021 Pinot Noir is a deep ruby hue and reveals forward aromas of spice and sun-ripened red cherry, sassafras, and pine. Full-bodied, with ample rounded fruit, it has fine tannins and a coating texture, with meaty red plum and iron-rich earth. A ripe style of red, it’s approachable now. - Jeb Dunnuck

James Molesworth writes: Lively, with a fun mix of raspberry, strawberry and cherry fruit flavors bouncing through, carried by a hint of bramble on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2024. - Wine Spectator

Joe Czerwinski writes: Sourced from multiple vineyards and aged just eight months in 15% new French oak, Saintsbury's 2021 Pinot Noir delivers notes of toasted cinnamon, roasted beetroot and ripe cherries. It's medium-bodied on the palate and gently silky, with a crisp, clean finish. Drink it over the next four or five years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate
