Balletto 2018 Pinot Noir Sexton
2018 Balletto Pinot Noir Sexton Hill Russian River Valley
NVWE Notes: The synergy of fruit and sweet-savory spice brings a gently creamy impression to the nose of this elegant Pinot as aromas of strawberry cream sickle, raspberry coulis, pink rose, baking-spice, coriander seed, sandalwood and vanilla fan-out. These elements and the note of genteel harmony are just as evident on the palate and through a quietly zesty, lingering finish where flavors of cherry pie, hazelnut nougat and a hint of white pepper are added in. Built for food service and already appealing, it should improve for another twelve to twenty-four months. 660 cases produced.
This wine offers incredible aromas of black raspberry and white pepper, an inviting combo that works to meld a cohesive whole that's both fruity and savory. Medium in weight, it presents as light, bright and silky on the palate. Virginie Boone 12/1/2020
