Tolosa – Pinot Noir 2016, Toyon Farm – Los Carneros, Napa Valley

The nose is juicy and offers elegance as well as a small concentration. It reveals notes of black cherry, crushed cassis and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of Zan, spices as well as a very discreet hint of nutmeg and local vegetation. The mouth is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, very slightly tight and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful juiciness, concentration, gourmandise and precision. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, crushed cassis and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of juicy black berries, crushed redcurrants, slight / discreet hints of cocoa, Zan as well as imperceptible hint of tea and local vegetation. Good length. Tannins are fine, elegant and currently a bit young. Good persistence.
