Tolosa – Pinot Noir 2016, Saltonstall Vineyard – Sonoma Coast

The nose is fruity, precise, slightly powerful and offers a small racy minerality. It reveals notes of red berries, blueberry and small notes of cornflower, lilacs associated with slight touches of cassis, tobacco, spices as well as a very discreet touch of Timut pepper. The mouth is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, slightly tight, silky and offers a beautiful definition, a slight acidulous frame, fleshiness, a good density, a beautiful gourmandise, a beautiful volume as well as a beautiful suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of plum, black cherry and small notes of fleshy red berries associated with small touches of wild raspberry, flowers (cornflower, lilac) as well as discreet hints of tobacco, chocolate and very discreet hints of vanilla. Good length.
