Carpathian Romanian Wine Cask Collection Pinot Noir Cask, 46%

Price: $50 Issue: Spring 2023 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

An attractive nose of summer fruits on first impression, with aromas of strawberry, red currant, floral bouquets, vanilla cream, and white pepper. There’s a lovely subtleness to the Romanian pinot noir wine-cask maturation here, showing heather honey and red currant flavors, plus some hot pepper, then caramel, vanilla, dried fruit, damson, and toffee as the spices settle down and the flavors round out.
