Etude Grace Benoist Ranch Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
A vibrant ruby red, garnet color, with aromas of lifted red berries, black cherry and fresh strawberry, alongside earth and spice notes of cedar, pink peppercorn and crushed tea leaf, finishing with brown baking spice notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove, characteristics often found in Grace Benoist Ranch Pinot Noirs. Rich, round and silky with bright acidity and long, fine-grained tannins that suggest the opportunity to age a bit, for further development of the complex layers of flavor.
Red currant and plum flavors are supported by lively acidity in this fresh, fruity style. White pepper hints show on the silky finish. Drink now. 24,881 cases made.
