2017 THE UPPER TERRACE VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
Our cherished, enigmatic 9-acre site continues to inspire and surprise us. Its sweet earth and spice aromas always prevail, yet in this vintage we discovered a new bouquet of wildflower blooms — a welcome evolution, or perhaps a signature of the vintage. The palate shows hallmark depth and balance, with candied berry, granite, and a waft of expertly roasted coffee. Long, lithe tannins carry the composition to an electric finish. We noted several moments passed before full expression in the glass, promoting our strong suspicion of high cellar aging potential for 7 – 10 years.
