"Bright red. Exotic, spice-laced red berry and floral pastille aromas pick up a smoky quality with air, showing a pure, nervy character and a hint of musky earth. Sappy, incisive and focused on the palate, offering intense raspberry and cola flavors and a palate-numbing peppery kick. Gains in sweetness with air, picking up a bitter cherry note that carries through the long, gently tannic finish."

"Pretty scents of rosewater, raspberries and cherries introduce this light and pleasing wine. It carries some of the charm of a good strawberry soda, with forward fruit and a delicate frame. That said, it is not just a simple fruity wine, and gains weight and complexity as it breathes. Give it time to show you all it has."

"The 2012 Pinot Noir La Paulée comes from the Maresh Vineyard that is biodynamically farmed. Aged in French oak for ten months, it has a sophisticated bouquet with vibrant redcurrant and raspberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity and an elegant red plum/mulberry finish. Though not in the same class as the Audrey Pinot Noir, this still represent outstanding value for money."
