Tasting notes

Medium ruby/purple with aromas of ripe black cherry, red cherry, blackberry jam and plum with vanilla, cinnamon and licorice spice, oak, leather, cola and camphor accents. The palate is full and sumptuous with a mix of black and red fruit with plum, barrel spice and a touch of oak on entry. The mid-palate shows balancing acidity with savory leather, and tobacco elements. Firm, but supple tannins and a long, evolving finish showing alternating fruit, baking spice and savory elements with hints of camphor and cured meat.


Food pairings

The 2018 Hop Kiln Estare Reserve Pinot Noir pairs well with Beef Bourguignon, where the wine cuts the richness of the dish, yet complement its rich flavors.
