d'Arenberg The Feral Fox Pinot Noir 2014

Upon arrival in this country, this was one of the wines that turned my eyes to the stocks of wines that I rarely got to see in the UK. Not looking its best on this release mind.

Blackcurrant, cassis like aromas, fairly forward, fruity 

Fairly thin, a little bitterness, racy across the palate; good rub of tannin, flash of acid. Somewhat generic red territory, but it works; lacks varietal character, and at $30 you'd question the value. 87 

Tasted on: Tuesday 14th June, a Root day
Source: Sample
Price: $30
Alcohol: 14.4%
Closure: Screwcap
