This is really beautiful with crushed strawberries and hints of raspberries with some savory undertones. Forest flowers, too. Full body and slightly austere tannins. Creamy and finely crafted. Lovely finish. 97% pinot noir and 3% petite sirah. Drink now.

Aged 10 months in 35% new French oak, the pale ruby-purple colored 2018 Pinot Noir Olema comes prancing out of the glass with bold black cherries, fresh raspberries and mulberries scents plus hints of cinnamon stick, underbrush and dusty soil. Medium-bodied, the palate has impressive definition for this price point, with bags of juicy red fruit and soft tannins to support, finishing with a refreshing lift. 20,000 cases produced.
The 2018 Olema Pinot Noir is a wine of beautifully complex aromatics. Ripe cherry, raspberries and rose petal notes give way to earthy flavors of mushroom, forest floor and hints of vanilla. A medium-bodied wine with lively, bright flavors, soft tannins, and a silky-smooth finish.
Blend: 97% Pinot Noir, 3% Petite Sirah
