2019 WALT Rosella's Vineyard Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir - Rosella's Vineyard
"Intense aromas of dark raspberry, black cherry, vanilla, allspice, clove and smoke swirl into a very heady nose on this bottling. The palate is hearty as expected, with dark red fruit, layers of floral elements and a cardamom spice. A big, impressive wine."
94 Points | Owen Bargreen
"The nose delivers high-toned red florals alongside guava and pomegranate seed tones with salty tilled soils. Dense and rich saline dusted red fruits mingle with tobacco leaf, leather and a bright veil of tension on the palate. Exceedingly good now, this has another decade or more to go."
94 Points | Vinos, Josh Reynolds
"Limpid violet color. Spice-accented cherry, raspberry and potpourri scents are complemented by suggestions of savory herbs and smoky minerals. Shows superb depth as well as energy to its Chambord, cherry-cola, candied rose and allspice flavors, which pick up a minerally aspect on the back half. Polished tannins frame the persistent finish, which leaves repeating red berry and floral notes behind."
