SOTRM WINES IGNIS PINOT NOIR 2017
Instantly impressive on the nose, the 2017 Ignis Pinot Noir overflows with focus and precision, boasting of ripe cherry, fresh strawberry and fresh rosehip that move on to nuances of oak with soft baking spices and structured mineral tones. The palate is elegant with a red-fruited stage that is focused and finessed. I don’t want to put my glass down. It's sexy. Medium-bodied, the wine ends with a complex and structured finished. 3,000 bottles were made from Pinot that saw 11 months in Burgundy coopered French oak barrels, of which 30% were brand new. Give this a try, if you enjoy fine Pinot. 93+. ROBERT PARKER.
