MINDEGO RIDGE PINOT NOIR "ESTATE" '16
Mindego Ridge Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountains 2016
NVWE Notes: Gorgeously fruity-spicy, the nose of this impressively focused Pinot melds vibrant blueberry, sweet-pickled crab apple syrup, sour red cherry, dark cherry, dark rose, coriander seed, dried herb, sweet pipe tobacco and dark forest scents into a wonderfully complex and attractive mix. All these elements seem even more youthful when replicated in the mouth and through a lingering finish where all the promised elements fan-out in a bright, complex, juicy panorama that is both true to its varietal and to its appellation. A gorgeous as it is today, it is likely to improve for at least three more years. 640 cases produced.
