Plaisance Ranch – Pinot Noir 2017, Spotted Horse Vineyard – Applegate Valley

The nose is aromatic, elegant, fruity and offers a small intensity, a fine grain as well as complexity with a beautiful definition. It reveals notes of violet, violet plum and small notes of rose associated with touches of strawberry as well as fine hints of spices, Cuben pepper and a discreet hint of cornflower. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, freshness and a mineral/acidulous frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry associated with small touches of raspberry, cherry, flowers (cornflower, rose) as well as very fine hints of sugared mild tobacco and a subtle hint of nutmeg. Tannins are elegant and structuring. Good length and persistence.
