Gainey Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2018 Rated 93VM
- Calculated at Checkout
The 2018 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is a fabulous Sta. Rita Hills Pinot. Racy and explosive, the 2018 packs a serious punch. Juicy dark red/purplish berry fruit, mint, lavender, spice and licorice notes are all pushed forward. Even with all of its fruit intensity, the 2018 retains terrific freshness and plenty of verve. It's the sort of wine that disappears in an instant at the dinner table. (Antonio Galloni)
Wine Tasting Notes
This delightful wine displays a vivid ruby-red hue and bright, fragrant, fruit-forward aromas of black cherry, red raspberry, blackberry and pomegranate, complemented by a whiff of rose hips tea. On the palate, the wine delivers intense, juicy, strawberry, cherry, plum and blackberry flavors that take on a zesty, tea-leaf spice tone en route to a long, fruitful, mineral-tinged finish. Delicious now with foods like grilled salmon, rotisserie chicken, roast duck, and lamb, this vibrant, varietally expressive Pinot Noir will age gracefully in bottle for the next 2-3 years.
