The 2019 The Art of Pinot Noir has a picturesque, bursting-from-the-glass nose of fresh, crunchy red fruit with bright, high-toned red florals and seductive notes of cinnamon and turned earth. Medium-bodied, fine-grained and balanced with succulent acidity, the wine somersaults across the palate with precision and finesse before concluding with a long, lingering, spicy finish. Nicely done!
Made from 60% whole cluster using clone 115 Pinot, the 2022 The Art of Pinot Noir begins with a fresh and expressive nose that offers complex and subtly spiced aromas of potpourri, rose petals, picturesque red fruit and seductive oak with brown baking spices. Medium-bodied, it is balanced with succulent acidity and fine-grained tannins that express a touch of shyness and tightness at the moment. It will benefit from additional years in the bottle. This beautiful Pinot is delicate, with a long, lingering finish and will continue to deliver pleasure for over a decade.
