The fruit pops out here with lots of crushed-strawberry and floral character. Full-bodied yet bright and focused. Hints of vanilla, fruit and cream. Flavorful finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir offers lovely baked raspberries, black cherries and mulberries notes with touches of chocolate box, earth, menthol and dried herbs with a waft of violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with red and black berries flavors plus earthy/herbal undertones and a plush frame, finishing with great freshness.
A brilliant ruby shade and lively aromas of red cherry, perfumed violet, and flaky pie crust, reveal this wine’s Sonoma Coast origins from the outset. A full palate of round, sumptuous fruit, along with flavors of earl grey tea and red clay, interact with its finely grained tannins. Balanced and elegant, the wine is playful throughout the long, energetic finish.
