FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvée "H" 2016
Bob Campbell, The Real Review
95 Points, 5 stars
#4 of 95, 2016 Pinot Noir from Marlborough
"The second vintage of a new label named after Fromm winemaker, Hätsch Kalberer. Taut, pure pinot noir with dark cherry, blackcurrant, violet and subtle herbal flavours supported by fine and integrated tannins. An impressive wine with a Fromm signature."
Joe, Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, March 2018
"A blend of the single-vineyard sites, the 2016 Cuvee H Pinot Noir isn't as concentrated as the 2015, but it remains a serious drop of Pinot Noir. A hint of cedar accents maraschino cherries on the nose, followed by a medium-bodied wine of exceptional texture and purity. The silky tannins linger on the finish, mingling with red berries in an exciting fruity-savory tango."

This is totally charming and irresistibly delicious. Plump, fleshy and succulent, the wine exhibits red/black cherry, blueberry compote, floral, cedar and fragrant spice characters on the nose with a hint of dried herb complexity. It is mouthfilling and velvety on the palate with fabulous fruit purity and richness within a classic structure provided by an abundance of polished tannins. Multi-layered and symphonic, a glorious expression combining fruits from five single vineyards. At its best: 2019 to 2028.

“This is a very strong follow-up to the inaugural 2015 release. Aromas of
bright red cherries carry bright, spicy and lightly earthy nuances on the
nose. Flavours of fresh red and black cherries are swathed in gently creamy
baking-spice complexity. The tannins run smooth, fine and even.”
