Jackson Estate

Jackson Estate 'The Gum Emperor Vineyard' Pinot Noir 2011 Marlborough
A nicely complete bouquet showing integration as well a youthfulness with primary fruit aromas and a developing softness; plums and dark cherry aromas and sweeter vanilla oak and mild toasty qaulities. On the palate - juicy, fruity, dry and dveloping some sound and comlpex flavours, fine tannins and medium+ acidity bring the structure together well; the fruits of plum and cherry in combination with some notable sweet oak and spice add length to an already lengthy finish. Great balance and finish - lots to like.
