MacRostie 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
2017 MacRostie Winery Pinot Noir Wildcat Mountain Vineyard Sonoma Coast
NVWE Notes: This wine well reflects the uniquely harsh conditions of its windy, high altitude vineyard. The aromas are a coiled mix of piquant red boysenberry, dried cranberry, sour red cherry, pink peppercorn, pink rose and licorice root scents cut by hard-edged minerality. Zesty fruit teams with scalding mineral notes in counterpoint to concentrated flavors of boysenberry, red plum, blood orange, pink rose, pink peppercorn and Panetone on the palate. The finish is super-dry, super long and builds in intensity as the wine airs. Brilliantly food-worthy now, it will grow significantly more so over the next five years. 691 Cases Produced.
Reductive and luxurious, this wine has plenty of layered texture and grip that gives it a powerful edge. Earthy mushroom, meat and spice accent bold jammy flavors of wild strawberry dipped in mint and tea. The voluptuous lushness is appealing. Virginie Boone 11/1/2019
