Mer Soleil Reserve Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Deep, brilliant garnet. Spice-accented red berries, vanilla and candied flowers on the perfumed nose, with a smoky nuance emerging as the wine opens up. Sappy, appealingly sweet and focused on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and cherry preserve. Rose pastille flavors smoothly blend power and delicacy. Fine-grained and seamless in texture, finishing extremely long and floral, with resonating spiciness and smooth, well-knit tannins.
Dried berry and cherry flavors show accents of savory spice and notes of hot stone, ending with a structured and well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2023. 13,450 cases made.
