Another head-turner is the 2016 Pinot Noir Double L, which was also destemmed and spent ten months in 50% new oak. It’s a tight, vibrant, youthful effort offering medium-bodied notes of blackberry and black cherry fruits intermixed with plenty of spice, scorched earth, and background oak. With beautiful purity, terrific balance, and again, a vibrant texture, it will be better with a year of bottle age and keep for upwards of a decade.
Vivid ruby-red. Smoke- and spice-tinged dark berry cola mocha and succulent floral aromas show excellent delineation and pick up a minerally nuance on the back half. Supple and concentrated on the palate offering intense red and dark berry flavors sharpened by a peppery nuance that gains strength on the back half. Finishes very long smooth and appealingly sweet with velvety tannins and lingering dark fruit notes. (JR)
Red cherry fruit notes with a whisper of raspberry make the early going here, and even though things are a bit held back, the nose is well-focused and presages the slight tightness on the palate. There are suggestions of suppleness in the background and good balance from front to back, and while this solid wine is pleasant enough now, it will show better a few years down the line.
