Lofty Valley 2011 Pinot Noir

Black cherry and a hint of strawberry.  Has an aromatic darkness to it - a little damp earth and compost - with a sprinkle of spice.

Entry shows a smooth wine, clean - a little simple.  Struck me as much a dry red in many respects.

Good length, acid derived length, latent fruit character pulled through, drying tannin to conclude (a positive).  88 - Good
