2019 WALT Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir - Clos Pepe, Radian, Bentrock, La Encantada & Rita's Crown Vineyards
Opulent aromas of baked Bing cherry and strawberry are flaked in licorice and a touch of clove on the nose of this rich expression. Dark plum and cherry tones meet with the appellation's characteristic cola spice on the palate.
91 Points | Wine Spectator, Kim Marcus
"Concentrated dark cherry and plum tart flavors are well-knit, showing forest floor accents. The richly textured finish is buoyant, showing cooking and savory spice accents, with hints of cocoa."
