The color of the 2013 REX HILL Jacob-Hart Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir is dark, saturated purple from center to rim offering primary aromas of dark cherries, black currants, huckleberries, cassis, rose petals and lavender. As the wine opens, more earthy aromas emerge of cinnamon, roasted black raspberries, wet stones, toasty oak and tobacco. The wine is structured on the palate with bright acidity and modest, ripe tannins, mirroring the aromatics with concentrated flavors of spice, blue and black fruits and minerals. True to form, this wine shows the balance and complexity of the Jacob-Hart Estate Vineyard as well as the ripe and concentrated nature of the 2013 vintage. The wine finishes with tremendous length confirming that this is a wine for the cellar that will age and become more complex over the next 15-20 years.
