Black Hills Estate Winery Nota Bene 2011 was last available in January 2018, with an average price of $70 USD. This bottled has been properly cellared and is peaking, decant and enjoy now, it could still keep for that special occasion as well.
“This complex and delicious blend comes charging out of the glass with a bouquet of blackberry, cherry, plum and chocolate. The palate delivers rich dark fruits with a hint of sage brush and notes of fine cocoa tannins. Notable for its beautiful balance, it should hold well through 2020 or decant and drink now. A great pairing with rich braised or grilled meat.”
Graham Pierce, Winemaker
“A mild winter and extended spring in 2011 provided optimal conditions for accelerated growth and an abundant crop. Generous primary growth allowed us to choose the most desirable clusters and reduce the crop load sooner. Early crop reduction and precise viticulture practices showed desirable ripening through the season. Hot, dry weather at the end of August and through September produced excellent flavour development and complexity.”
Steve Carberry, Winegrower
