This wine is dark and gorgeous in the glass. Aromas of ripe blackberry, sweet coconut and black tea rise from the glass flow through to the palate and combine with suggestions of elderberry, cranberry and black currant. The lingering finish is long and satisfying.
From the review: "Moss and wood notes mingle with violet and lavender perfume on this elegant, subtly nuanced Pinot Noir. Ripe, rich black-cherry and berry flavors are offset by a brisk acidity and a penetrating mineral backbone. It's lovely now, but structured enough, and still boldly tannic, to merit further cellar aging. Drink from 2020-2025"
This vintage of Black Russian Red has an enticing deep red-purple color backed up with aromas reminiscent of black currants, elderberry, ripe plum, and ripe red raspberries. This medium bodied wine combines all these aromas on the palate with tart cherries, mellow oak character and rich, silky tannins all leading to a nice, long and contemplative finish.
This vintage of Pinot Noir is a blend of all three of the Pinot Noir Clones we grow here at McGregor Vineyard: Mariafeld clone, Clone 7, and the Gamay-Beaujolais clone. This is a very aromatic wine with aromas reminiscent of ripe red raspberries, cherries and strawberries with a hint of vanilla. These aromas follow through on the palate and the wine is rich and medium bodied. The oak character is elegantly integrated with the fruit character and the wine lingers nicely on the palate. Aged for 27 months in French Oak.
This vintage has fruit driven aromas such as cherries, blackberries and strawberries combined with spice black tea and hints of forest floor. Rob Roy Red is very smooth and palate filling and the aromatics blend well with the oak barrel influences.
Very fine tannins sit and linger on a very pleasant finish. Cabernet Franc is the workhorse of the blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot providing background and nuanced complexity.
