2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
With an abundance of ripe red and blue fruit, this wine is open, accessible, and delicious. On the nose, notes of spiced plums, cola, dried flowers, and grilled meat add complexity to the core of crushed berries. On the palate, the wine is broad and rich with notes of rhubarb, and tart cherries rounding out the mid-palate. A modicum of toasted oak complements the dark-fruited core with lively mineral-laced tannins supporting a juicy, medium-length finish. Peak drinking window: 2018 through 2026.
