The ‘Avni’ Pinot Noir by Lingua Franca opens with toasty oak that wraps around bright red fruits with earthy and citrus rind tones, all melding together in the glass. The palate has beautiful balance, showing a smooth texture and a bright acidity. Intense red fruits collide with minerals and hints of blood orange zest with peat moss on the palate. The long, earthy and red fruit-driven finish lingers. While marvelous in its youth, this has at least a decade ahead of it. Drink 2019-2029- 92

Vino extraño, poca nariz, mineral, lapiz. En boca no me agradó, pero si su postgusto?🤔

Cherry cola. A bit too grainy in the finish but could go a while. Earthy and mushroomy nose
