I struggled with this Tapanappa Foggy Hill Pinot Noir 2018. It’s powerfully built, a muscular Pinot of brawn, deep-set oak and tannins, but the fruit generosity seems missing, the mid palate is more gruff than it is giving, and the finish is hard too.
There’s Pinosity there, but it feels unforgiving and a bit hard. Score gets a bump thanks to the length, but I dunno.
Best drinking: later. Maybe 2-3 years could help, or it will just fall over. 17/20, 90/100. Tapanappa website. 13.8%, $55. Would I buy it? Nope.
