2017 Sta Rita Hills Pinot Noir, Fiddlestix Vineyard
Deep garnet in color, with intense aromas of lively fruit, baking spice and complex minerality. Richly textured, lush and creamy, a few swirls will release a symphony of Bing cherry, black berry, ground herbs with a hint of black licorice. The concentrate fruit core is seductive yet beautifully balanced, with delicate layers of cherry blossom, blueberry and cinnamon. The complex finish lingers with cherries and a touch of sweet vanilla.
