The 2019 Pinot Noir Wester Reach is nervy, taut and full of energy. Crushed flowers, red berry fruit and chalky accents convey vibrancy in this mid-weight, focused Pinot. Winemaker Andy Smit blends a number of top Russian River sites for his Wester Reach Pinot. In 2019, the blend is 26% DuMOL Estate, 22% Flax Estate, 20% Dutton-Widdoes, 16% Dutton-Upper Road and 16% Occidental Road. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2021)

soils heavier on clay. complex nose, there’s a floral or herbal note that I can’t put my finger on to id. it makes sense with the wine, very pretty. dried berries- currant. palate is silky, I think a little bit tight. will open up. beautifully balanced.

Very ripe color compared to most Pinot noirs I am use to. Highly recommend you let this on breathe for a couple of hours first; it helped a lot. Smooth and delicate on the palate

Rich yet restrained. Ripe red fruit but not over the top in any way. Ripe tannins as well make for an bold yet elegant pinot.
