Bouchard Finlayson CWG Walker Bay Pinot Noir 2009 90+ Points

Ripe, showy, oaky style, dark plums, earthy note, quite “Italianated” in profile, atypical for a Pinot Noir, shows more the masculine side, nevertheless it is packed with saturated dark fruits, mid palate stuffing, salty leather note, complex and broad texture, savory black olives, the high alcohol of 14.41% abv, creates a fullness, embryonic, a sleeper.
