2019 Nunes Vineyard ~ Pinot Noir ~ Russian River Valley ~ 750 ml
The 2019 Nunes Vineyard Pinot offers loads of complexity, starting with the nose—a seductive blend of barrel toast and deep, concentrated dark cherry and raspberry that jumps out of the glass. The palate reveals raspberry, dark cherry and blackberry all woven with well-integrated toasty oak notes. High tone pomegranate and dried raspberry appear as the wine opens. Fresh acidity, a solid structure and the depth of flavors allow the complexity to build through the long finish. Simply a stunning wine.
