Tolosa – Pinot Noir 2016, Apex Vineyard – Santa Lucia Highlands

The nose is fresh, mineral, aromatic and offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of crushed cassis, blackberry and small notes of dried wild red berries associated with discreet hints of rose, flowers as well as slight toasted hints, liquorice and vanilla. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful unctuosity, minerality, tension, a small straightness, a beautiful volume, a beautiful definition as well as a good freshness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, plum and small notes of black cherry, crushed red berries associated with touches of chocolate, caramelization, Zan as well as hints of vanilla. Good length.
