Tasting :

"Medium ruby-purple-colored, the 2010 First Paddock Pinot Noir reveals a simply gorgeous nose of violets, rose hips and wild thyme over a core of pomegranate and kirsch. Elegantly fruited on the medium bodied palate, this is a superb example of the very fine structure, balance and incredible intensity. The finish is very long and harmonious." -LPB Wine Advocate
