One of the best vintages for this wine (maybe the best?), the 2015 Prima Donna Pinot Noir seamlessly marries dark, earthy, savory complexity with bright red fruit that hints at pie cherries, raspberries and cranberries. Sous-bois, humus and dried spices lead the way, later yielding to the bright fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's round and supple in the mouth, then gains focus and length on the velvety-textured finish. Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

The screwcap lifted off, but the wine seemed fine. Rich, concentrated and quite savoury pinot noir with plum, dark berry, violet and spicy oak flavours amongst the more obvious descriptors of this very complex wine. Firmly-structured but accessible. Worth cellaring for a few years to integrate flavours and develop texture. Bob Campbell MW
