The Pinot Project Pinot Noir 2017
This is such a great buy from importer Michael Skurnik who turned to California for this wine. While supple in texture, the wine packs in dense red-cherry and ripe raspberry aromas and flavors that seem subtle at first but slowly open and expand with each sniff and sip. It has good layering and an excellent balance of moderate tannins and acidity.
This has some cedar and tart nectarine overtones to the dried cherry flavors. Fresh-sawed lumber notes show on the finish. Drink now. 75,000 cases made.
