2013 Tintern Road Pinot – David Lawrason (Wine Align)
David’s Score: 93/100
Tintern Road is a newly planted, tight spaced six acre pinot noir site just inside the Vinemount Ridge appellation atop the Niagara Escarpment. Quite
floral, sweet red cherry aromas with fine oak vanillin, herbs, some meatiness and spice. Certainly the most flattering of the four 2013 Tawse
single-site pinots. I thought fleetingly of Oregon pinot. It has more power,silk and depth on the palate as well; a richer pinot but no lack of
precision or complexity. Really quite a mouthful with firm tannin andalcohol. Still a tad green and tannic but also approachable. Excellent
length and focus.
