Haute Cabrière Pinot Noir Reserve 2014, R190
From the famed cellar on Franschhoek’s pass comes the latest release of their flagship Pinot Noir. “Oak is only a platform to present this Noble Cultivar and not a curtain to hide it as in a theater play,” says Cellar Master Takuan von Armin. And as such, this vintage has been matured for nine months in 228L Burgundy Oak Barrels. Think berries, berries, berries with a smoky note of cherry tobacco. The berries continue on the palate, spiced with gentle oak, and fine tannins. Good crispy finish, especially if served slightly chilled.
