(raised for 18 months in French oak barrels, 20% of them new) Limpid ruby-red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, Asian spices and candied rose, and a smoky mineral nuance adds vivacity. Sappy, sweet and penetrating in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and floral pastille flavors joined by hints of spicecake and vanilla that build slowly on the back half. Focused and seamless in texture, showing superb finishing clarity, fine-grained tannins and outstanding persistence.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
With a pale to medium ruby-purple color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Rincon Vineyard has a nose of fragrant earth, underbrush and fungi over a core of red currants, cranberries and lavender, plus a touch of baking spices. Medium-bodied, with great intensity and expression, the earthy layers are well supported by chewy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with a pretty herbal lift. Rating: 93+
Light burgundy in appearance, the 2015 vintage of Rincon Vineyard Pinot Noir is ruby in color and offers aromas of strawberry, herb, and cinnamon spice. The palate is soft and plush and exudes vibrant notes of cherry, ripe raspberry, and green tea.
Try pairing this wine with ahi tuna with miso glaze or grilled pork tenderloin.
