The 2017 J Vineyards Pinot Noir presents a balanced program with this offering. This wine drinks well and satisfies nicely on the palate. Enjoy its precise aromas and flavors of pretty fruit and oak accents with grilled lamb chops.
Beautifully aromatic with appealing depth on the palate, our Multi-Appellation Pinot Noir offers a smooth, fruit-forward sip. This silky wine opens with fruit notes of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry jam, which blends seamlessly with earthy and spicy hints of forest floor, lavender, freshly-ground coffee beans and clove. Well-textured acidity, fine tannins and suggestions of dark toast give the palate depth and complexity before a lingering finish highlighted by fruit notes.
