Pinot Noir, ‘California’, The Pinot Project

The Pinot Project Pinot Noir is handcrafted from high quality Sonoma County, Monterey, and Central Coast vineyards. The diversity in soil and climate from these AVAs contributes to depth in character, balance, and pristine fruit. The grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness and then destemmed in order to express bright fruit flavors and maintain freshness. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, and 20% of the blend is aged for 5 months in French oak. The Pinot Project rests for 6 months in bottle before release

Review:
“This is such a great buy from importer Michael Skurnik who turned to California for this wine. While supple in texture, the wine packs in dense red-cherry and ripe raspberry aromas and flavors that seem subtle at first but slowly open and expand with each sniff and sip. It has good layering and an excellent balance of moderate tannins and acidity.”

Fresh and refined pinot with strawberries, hints of cherries and blanched walnuts on the nose and palate. Medium body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows subtlety and flavor.
