We’re thrilled to have our hands on this inaugural release from Donum’s impressive estate, a Pinot Noir that’s built to last. It takes a little time to open up now, but a few years in the cellar should dole out serious rewards. The midpalate layers of bright, lively red fruit find an earthy intensity in black tea and forest notes. Decant now, or tuck it away until 2025 and congratulate yourself on serious foresight.

Wine Enthusiast

This is an inaugural release from the producer's estate, a tight, reductive expression that will take time to unfurl. Earthy in black tea, forest and a midpalate intensity, it reveals layers of bright, lively red fruit, a mix of raspberry, strawberry and cherry that gives it a lasting freshness.
