Nielson 2015 Pinot Noir
2015 Nielson Pinor Noir Santa Maria Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 89 Points
Genteel and pretty, this mature Pinot Noir offers an elegant bouquet of plum tart, strawberry-rhubarb pie, berry compote, nutmeg, coriander seed, mace and baking spice scents. It shows both fine evolution and a bit more savory depth on the palate, where accents of mace, coriander seed, tobacco leaf and a hint of cardamom support fruit flavors centered on baked red plum, strawberry and red boysenberry. A trace note of forest mushroom appears as the wine airs. Dry and softly tart, it is built for food service and fully ready to enjoy. 570 cases produced.
