Wine Advocate 90 - Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Estate reveals a lovely perfume of lavender, dried Provence herbs and dried roses over a core of fresh cranberries and Bing cherries, plus a waft of cinnamon stick. Light to medium-bodied and with great elegance in the mouth, the perfumed red fruit is nicely framed by soft, fine-grained tannins and it finishes on an earthy note.
The 2015 vintage of Estate Pinot Noir is translucent garnet in hue and expressive of the distinctive character of the Arroyo Grande Valley which produces structured pinot noir with strong mineral notes. Bright strawberry aromas are complemented by hints of pomegranate seed and sage. The palate reveals notes of dried cranberry, strawberry cream, and black tea, with soft sandalwood undertones weighted toward a juicy and lingering finish. Enjoy this pinot noir with grilled salmon or caprese salad.
