Library release of the 2014 Wayfarer Estate 'Golden Mean' Pinot celebrates a union between the Swan clone, with its elegance and enticing perfume, and the Pommard clone, with its earthy aromatics and powerful structure. This is a dark and brooding Pinot that balances thoughtful aromas of rose petal and cocoa with the Edgar Allan Poe palate of black cherry and soft tannins. You will never say ‘Nevermore’.
Dark, brooding cinnamon and fleshy black plum provide an exciting, complex counterpoint to the rakish earthiness and exotic Asian spice going on in this full-bodied, explosively compelling wine, its minerality lingering. It's young and still tightly coiled, with lingering minerality; let it open to enjoy now, but it would show best after some time, so cellar through 2024.
