2018 Bernardus Pinot Noir Rosella’s Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 98+ Points
This is a lovely Pinot that is as deep, dark, lush and intense as it’s great vintage promises. The aromas are a focused medley of black cherry, red plum, red boysenberry, pink peppercorn, dark pipe tobacco, clove, dried herb, oolong tea leaf and forest earth scents. It is grandly ripe on the palate yet full of youthfully vibrant fruit to counterpoint its layering of savory spice. A lingering finish brings harmony and elegance to the wine’s wide variety of fruity-savory flavors while its generosity guarantees that the tannins are never intrusive. The wine ends with a big push of red and blue fruits, tobacco and star anise. Buyers can expect three years of steady improvement, but they will find it enchanting right now. 1000 cases Produced.
