2016 Grand Vin Reserve Pinot Noir, Estate Grown, Sonoma Coast
This beauty has a medium ruby color & reveals an earthy nose of forest floor & black soil over a black cherry core with aromas of spring flowers & spice box. Medium-bodied with a solid backbone of ripe, silky tannins and refreshing acid. An ultra-pure, seamless & elegant package that will benefit from short term cellaring & then cruise for a decade on its impeccable balance. It has a great intensity of clean earth & berry flavors that are perfectly layered and evolve toward a finish of great length. Exceptional.
