Nielson 2016 Pinot Noir
2016 Nielson Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 90+ Points
Elegant and well-evolved, yet still fresh, the aromas of this pretty Pinot offer a genteel harmony of red plum, boysenberry, dark cherry, baking spice and a hint of mace along with mineral undercurrents. It is medium-bodied, supple and quietly zesty on the palate, where flavors of sour red cherry, red plum, dark berry and cranberry sauce marry notes of hazelnut nougat and baking spice. These flavors linger nicely, with a food friendly balance, and the wine is ready to drink. 2800 cases made.
