Artesa Winery – Pinot Noir 2012 – Block 91D – Single Vineyard – Napa Valley

The nose is quite powerful, complex and quite elegant. It reveals notes of cherry, black cherry and strawberry associated with fine floral notes (blueberry and a touch of lilac) as well as small woody notes and a touch of white pepper. The palate is fruity, mineral, elegant, balanced and quite fine. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of cherry, raspberry and crushed strawberry associated with  touches of toasted oak and very discreet notes of sweet spices. Tannins are fine and slightly dry.
