Dr. Owen Bargreen

The 2017 'Earth' Pinot Noir is a barrel selection wine made by the talented Brian Marcy. As the wine slowly unwinds in the glass, it unveils perfumed aromatics of copious red fruits that come together with peat moss and shades of fresh white truffle on this expressive nose. The palate reveals a wonderfully silky texture that coats the mid-palate leaving begind flavors of red currant jelly, wild blackberry cordial, peat moss and suggestions of cigar ash which all mingle brilliantly. While utterly delicious now, this seductive, yet well-balanced Pinot Noir should continue to cellar marvelously over the next fifteen plus years. Drink 2019-2035- 95
