Etude Grace Benoist Ranch Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
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.
Notes of dried tarragon accent the roasted cherry and ripe plum flavors. Offers bacon hints midpalate, with a plush and well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2020. 19,000 cases made.
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.
