Tolosa – 1772 Pinot Noir 2016, Pacific Wind – Edna Ranch, Edna Valley

The nose is fruity, well-structured and offers a small concentration. It reveals notes of black cherry, cassis and small wild berries associated with small touches of prunes, iris, lilacs as well as discreet hints of spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a beautiful definition, a fine acidulous frame, a small minerality, a beautiful finesse, a beautiful precision, a beautiful power, a good structure, a beautiful texture as well as a beautiful, round / suave and slightly unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of plum, black cherry and small notes of cassis associated with small touches of very ripe red berries, Zan, tobacco as well as very discreet toasted hint, flowers and a very discreet / imperceptible hint of local vegetation (in the background). Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
