Sokol Blosser 'Goosepen Block' Pinot Noir 2016 Review

This wine is in it for the long game and is developing even as these word are being typed. While it is enjoyable now, where it’s going is going to be stunning. Even though it is evolving we can catch a glimpse of aromas that will soon fold into harmony. Awaiting you for now are notes of farmyard and mushrooms mingling with cherry and rhubarb aromas, balanced by a tart cherry liqueur note and a beetroot earthiness. The acidity is vibrant, showing slight notes of black olive and sweet wood from good oak. Can’t wait to see where this goes.
