Juicy strawberries and plum are cut with allspice and star anise on the sharply spiced nose of this wine from one of the Golden State’s legendary producers. The palate shows the juice of darker berries, from blackberries to black cherries, with an Earl Grey tea bitterness and dried sage complexity.
Here, again, is an altogether splendid Pinot that belies any notion that only those wines sourced from a single vineyard can perform at the highest levels, and it features wonderfully keen and clear, ripe cherry fruit set against subtle notes of minerals and sweet spice. It is at once concentrated and neatly proportioned with a lengthy, properly firm finish, and, while impressing now with its measured richness, it will age famously and is guaranteed to last for a good many years.
The 2013 Pinot Noir (Central Coast) is juicy, open and expressive, with plenty of radiant fruit and terrific overall balance for a wine of its level. There is nothing fancy here, but readers could certainly do a lot worse, especially at this price point. This supple, fruit-driven Pinot delivers superb value in a distinctly racy, flashy style.
