Bateman Pinot Noir

Classic Pinot Noir forest floor aromas are highlighted with hints of clove and cinnamon, edged by flavors of dried cherry and tobacco. The palate is broad and rich revealing a perfect balance of texture, finesse and acidity. With a bit of time in the cellar our Bateman Pinot Noir reveals its full seductive curves of depth and complexity.

The Wine Advocate
Review by Robert Parker

Another relatively small cuvée is the 2014 Pinot Noir Bateman Vineyard, which is medium ruby showing notes of damp earth, cinnamon, clove, sassafras, pomegranate and red cherry in an expressive Premier Cru Côte de Beaune-like style. This is a nice, fleshy, soft, round Pinot Noir to drink over the next 5-6 years. -90 pts.
