(2020) Really even more expressive of the terroir than the straight Pinot, and the quality barrel component adding a tiny touch of smoke and then some more floral and cherry character. Really plush, ripe cherry flesh fruit, but then the taut power of the tannins, concentration and sheer acidity powers the finish giving tension and compression. Tinker’s Field boasts the oldest vines on the property and is named after Rippon’s founder, Rolfe Mills (Tink to his friends). No vintage stated by the only UK retailer at time of review.
(2020) From an east-facing block on the lake front, this has a chestnutty and salty note, cherry pits and bright red fruit, and there's gravel and earth in the mix too. Fine-grained tannins here, such lovely acidity, with a tension and tauness that gives that agile character. Only one retailier in the UK at time of review, but they do not give a vintage.
