Tolosa – Pinot Noir 2016, Solomon Hills Vineyard – Santa Maria Valley

The nose is aromatic, fresh, beautifully elegant and mineral. It reveals notes of blackberry, violet and small notes of plum associated with touches of iris, lilac as well as discreet hints of blue berries, strawberry, discreet toasted hints and caramelization. The palate is fruity, silky, well-balanced and offers a beautiful juiciness, a beautiful definition, a beautiful freshness, a small depthness as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, crushed cassis and small notes of plum associated with small touches of dried blueberry, wild strawberry, liquorice, Zan as well as discreet hints of tobacco and chocolate. Tannins are fine, elegant and very discreetly firm. There is an imperceptible touch of cocoa / espresso on the aftertaste.
