A vibrant red ruby trending garnet color, aromas of heady red plum, dark cherry and berry confiture dominate, alongside bright fresh fruit with slight bay and thyme, white pepper and slight oak spice. Flavors follow the same pattern, with the familiar cinnamon graham cracker note often found in this wine. Rich and round and showcasing red fruits such as Bing cherry, raspberry with bright acidity and long, fine-grained tannins that suggest the opportunity to age a bit for further development of complex layers of flavors. Glossy, a bit showy, a fine example of what Grace Benoist Ranch offers.

Revealing a deeper ruby color, the 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Grown Grace Benoist Ranch (100% Pinot Noir from Los Carneros) offers a fruit-forward, richer style that carries notes of red plums, blackberries, licorice, and smoked earth. It's nicely textured, plump, and rounded on the palate, with plenty to love.

From estate-grown fruit, planted to a variety of clones, this is thick, savory wine that's rich and round on the palate in layers of blackberry and cherry. Toasted oak wraps around firm, persistent tannins that underscore its ultimate power and full-bodied approach.
