Escarpment Pinot Noir Martinborough Pahi 2014 (750ML)
90+ Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pahi Pinot Noir reveals an earthy/musk perfume-laced character over a core of red currants and cranberries plus hints of stewed tea, fallen leaves and twigs. Medium-bodied, elegant and with a good backbone of chewy tannins, it is restrained and understated, finishing with earth nuances." 12/16
90+ Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: " Deep red with ruby tones. More anise and herbs on the nose than the basic bottling, along with raspberry and a hint of fresh dill. Broad, sweet and fine-grained, with the enticing raspberry fruit component complicated by herbs, spices, earth and minerals. Really spreads out to dust the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Finishes with a youthful edge and noteworthy energy. This essentially generous wine is kept firm in the early going by its stem component." 5/16
97 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com: "The clear and swirling whole-bunch aromatics here are really charming and bursting with attractive and complex pinot perfumes such as rose petals, sweet spices and bright red-tinged berry fruits. The palate has handy definition, light and shade, powerful yet reserved detail and long tannins that run in unison through a very focused, juicy and punchy crisp finish. I love this wine for its elegance and power; it's great pinot at its finest. Best from 2018." 12/16
91 Points, Wine Spectator: "Juicy and vibrant, with cherry, raspberry and pomegranate flavors and an earthy, firm edge. Features aromatic accents of dried lavender, nutmeg and fresh tomato leaf. Drink now through 2026. 250 cases made." 10/16
92 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "There is a trace of herbal tea character to the otherwise spicy and ripe dark currant, spice and soft floral nuances that are trimmed in discreet wood nuances. There is a sleek and supple mouth feel to the relatively refined mid-palate of the dense, serious and powerful flavors that are shaped by a moderately firm tannic spine that is largely, if not completely, buffered by an impressive level of dry extract on the robust finale. Texturally speaking this is an interesting wine as the refinement of the mid-palate stands in considerable contrast to the borderline rustic and structured finale. No matter, this is clearly built-to-age and is going to need at least 7 to 8 years to arrive at its probably apogee. Lovely and packed with aging potential." 10/16
