    Escarpment Pinot Noir Martinborough Kupe 2016 (750ML)

    In Stock — Zachys NY
    94 Points, MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator: "Subtle, with details of talcum powder, white pepper and dried lavender up front, leading to pomegranate and wild strawberry flavors. A hint of sandalwood lingers on the finish, where the fine-grained tannins take on a gentle grip. Drink now through 2028. 300 cases made, 150 cases imported." 10/18

    Critics

    James Suckling Notes
    98 Points, James Suckling: "Exceptionally complex, spicy and ripe, this delivers profoundly concentrated and pure black cherries with plenty of sweet spice and an ethereal, undergrowth edge. Smoothly rendered and delivered in a very deep-set, black-cherry palate. Inviting and dense, this really delivers in 2016. Superb. Drink in 2022." 12/18

    Decanter Notes
    97 Points, Rebecca Gibb MW, Decanter: "The Kupé vineyard was originally planted on its own roots in 1999, and is now slowly being replanted due to phylloxera - damn aphid. The 2016 season was warm and dry, producing a complex and harmonious wine here. Escarpment is known for its use of whole bunches, and this contains a whopping 70%. The wine fills the mouth with fragrances of pure damson, with spicy cinnamon and herbal elements. An abundance of resolved tannins coats the palate, melting harmoniously on the long, drawn out, tea-leaf finish." 10/18
