Umami, you know, the fifth basic taste. Well, there is no shortage of that in the 2018 Johan Pinot Noir. Immediate aromas of truffle, salt and earth. With time, further exotic notes of chocolate, espresso and blackberry. Referencing the sneaky part described, as you don't anticipate it, waves of deep red fruit course through on the aromas and taste. There is little doubt that this iteration is brooding and will benefit from a decant, or time in the cellar.
