MerSoleil – Pinot Noir 2016 Reserve – Santa Lucia Highlands

The nose is fruity, finely powerful and offers a very slight concentration. It reveals notes of black cherry, cassis and small notes of wild strawberry, blueberry associated with discreet hints of liquorice, gray pepper, flowers, sweet spices as well as a discreet hint of cardamom. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a beautiful acidulous frame, a slight suavity, a fine silkiness as well as a good finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, cassis and small notes of plum associated with fine hints of liquorice, tea as well as a very discreet iodine hint and an imperceptible touch of cocoa / dark chocolate. Tannins are well integrated.
