MINDEGO RIDGE CHARDONNAY ESTATE '16
Mindego Ridge 2016 Pinot Noir "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains
NVWE Notes: This is a gorgeous wine from a brilliant and distinctive property. The aromas are a vividly spicy perfume of white peach, golden fig, gooseberry, apple skin, tarte tatin, white rose, hazelnut husk and flinty mineral scents. Dried peach, apple skin, golden fig and gooseberry take center-stage on the palate, where things are as complex yet more notably youthful and age-worthy, and mineral undercurrents bring a harder edge to to an otherwise plush texture. Certain to get ever more exciting over the next three years, it will prove a stunning counterpart to seared scallops right now. 340 cases made.
