Shimmering ruby. Pungent cherry, red berry and floral aromas are complemented by a zesty spice topnote. Taut and nervy on entry, then more fleshy in the midpalate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that show very good depth as well as energy. Fine-grained tannins lend gentle grip to a clinging finish that strongly echoes the spice note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, October 2020)

This balanced, spice-tinged Pinot Noir offers sappy red fruit and floral character, with a spine of juicy acidity keeping things lively. A bit of air stretches it out and brings up a hint of musky earth. Finding delicious Pinot in the SLH is easy, but real values are far harder to come by. $24.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2020)
