HAMILTON RUSSELL Pinot Noir Hemel-en-Aarde Valley 2013
93 points, $48
Distinctive and alluring, with sassafras, cinnamon, black tea and briar patch aromas all unfurling slowly, while the core offers silky, refined cherry, plum and raspberry fruit flavors. The long, spice-infused finish shows a nicely coiled tension that should unwind in the cellar. Drink now through 2019. 2,300 cases imported. —James Molesworth
