A pretty and inviting nose of red currants, blue pinot fruit and spice notes leads to vigorous middle weight flavors with plenty of dry extract that coats the palate. There is excellent length, with just a hint of warmth, though this doesn’t materially detract from the balance of this attractive effort that is built for mid-term cellaring.
Grapes for this were harvested September 5, 14 and 21 and the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. Pale ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Estate has very pretty scents of gravel dust, fresh cranberries, strawberry-rhubarb, cinnamon stick and dried leaves with notes of tar, dried citrus peel and lilac. It’s light to medium-bodied and restrained but nuanced with a gentle texture and mouthwatering freshness on the bright finish. Such a lovely, lifted style. (EB)
Leading off the reds, the 2017 Pinot Noir Estate reveals a deeper ruby hue as well as notes of sour cherries, sassafras, spice-box, and exotic flowers. It’s rounded, medium-bodied, has light tannins, and a great finish, all making for a terrific, complex Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 4-6 years.
