2016 Rikard Black Label Pinot Noir


Black Label Pinot Noir clones are chosen to create a powerful wine with a darker fruit spectrum and fuller bodied mid palate than the 2016 Pinot Noir. Only the best barrels and the best parcels of fruit in the best years are selected for this wine. It is a wine that is made to touch every taste bud and fill every corner of the mouth. A brute and a gentleman in one.

Out of stock


On the nose is an interplay between dark sour cherry, cloves, spice, chocolate and mulberries. The fruit on the palate is the same. It also has a mouth-coating richness and a degree of viscosity on the palate, lightened by its persistent acid line and some whole-bunch tannin structure. The finish is full and long.


” A barrel selection of the best of vintage, the style is very similar to its varietal sibling, the difference lying in the length of the palate and the power on its aftertaste.”
