This is a very big Pinot Noir, proudly showing off its muscles. Few Pinots anywhere achieve this depth of fruit.

A beautifully delineated, mid-weight Pinot, the Pastorale impresses for its fabulous balance and pure personality. The 2010 is bright and focused from start to finish. Savory herbs and floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and finesse. It is a lovely showing from Phelps.
