JS92 James Suckling
The appealing red-cherry and lemon-peel aromas and only a whisker of toasty oak on the nose, pull you into this very attractive pinot noir. Many will find the crisp tannins and liveliness surprising for a Napa Valley red. Long, bright finish. Drink or hold.

This wine is earthy in rock and forest elements, with lifted tones of velvety red fruit and rose petal. The tannin and oak are expansive and sturdy on the palate, providing structure around richer aspects of cola and tea.
Rose petals, hawthorn, wild strawberry and plum mingle with hints of cola, black tea and licorice. On the palate, dark fruits of blackberry and black cherry take the lead, with lovely jam notes, a notion of sassafras and a long, supple, velvety finish.
