Spicy oak is cast across ripe red berries and cherries and delivers a modern impression. There’s a fresh-earth edge here, too, with attractive, spicy notes and a very vibrant feel to the tannins, which carry a grainy cut that holds freshness into the finish. Drink or hold.

Sleekly structured and savory, with expressive raspberry, violet and smoky tea accents that pick up speed toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2028.

Quite young and showing clean primary fruit flavors of tart red berries, this is backed with ample acidity, lending a pleasing citrusy snap to the mouthfeel. It finishes with a wash of minerality. Good now, but another year in the bottle wouldn't hurt a bit.

The 2018 Soléna Grande Cuvée Pinot Noir shows an excellent juxtaposition between fruit and earth. This wine shines with its ripe berry and chalky aromas and flavors. Pair it with grilled, seasoned lamb chops.
A bright ruby color fills the glass. On the nose the Grand Cuvée displays youthful exuberance with lively aromas of tart cherries, strawberries and cranberries. While flavors of licorice, cola and baking spices balance perfectly on the palate. A delightful lightness allows this wine to be the perfect accompaniment to any evening or celebration.
