Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021

Delectable Wine

The 2021 Pinot Noir Julia's Vineyard is laced with crushed red berry fruit. Spice, tobacco and mint are some of the notes that grace this expressive, nuanced Pinot. The 2021 was done with fully destemmed fruit, but there is a sense of savoriness here that is quite attractive. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2023) — 16 days ago

Warehouse wine,
Bought to stay on the allocation list, definitely opened early but I needed to compare to older vintages I’ve had. There’s a reason these last 20 years. 2002 are drinking great. 4th day on this one.
Enjoy in 2038

2002. Wow. Beautiful and elegant. Only 10% abv according to the label but I’d guess higher. Petrol, honey, Corn Pops cereal, dill, mandarin oranges, golden raisin. This is amazing. — 20 days ago

This was excellent. Delicious, fruity, juicy, very smooth and drinkable, light tannins and not very earthy for a Pinot. — 18 days ago
