Trinity Hill Lost Garden Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2019 $29.95

This Central Hawke’s Bay-grown pinot noir is intensely aromatic, infused with bay leaf, cherry, blueberry and a bunch of bright, vibrant spicy layers to boot.  Floral and tightly coiled on the palate, it’s a raspberry-stacked style that will unfurl itself over the next year or two.  Hawke’s Bay pinot noir has its own earthy, dried herb character, particularly those from the limestone and argillite soils of Central Hawke’s Bay, and so I’m sure the Lost Garden will be discovered pretty quickly.
