Westwood Annadel Gap Sonoma Pinot Noir 2017 Rated 94TP
- Calculated at Checkout
Lilac, plum, and wet earth are just the first set of aromatics to grace the nose delivered by this luxe red. The palate is equally charged with flavor and perfume, from sweet molasses and wild cherry to savory mushroom. The texture is chewy, even fleshy, and the finish sparks with black pepper, spiced cedar, and sassafras.
Jeb Dunnuck Review
The 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma County should represent a terrific value (I wasn't able to get a price for this release) and it has a classic, balanced style as well as complex notes of black raspberries, spice, and smoky earth. As with everything from this estate, it's beautifully balanced, with undeniable elegance and a great finish. I suspect it will keep for a decade.
Wine Tasting Notes
The Sonoma County Pinot Noir is a selection of rows from our own biodynamically farmed Annadel Gap Vineyard, located in the cool Northern Sonoma Valley, along with the best parcels sourced from Terre de Promissio. The wine shows sultry aromas of lavendar and crushed rose petals. Flavors are filled with strawberry, raspberry and candied orange. The mouthfeel is generous and the finish is full and balanced with bright, seamless acidity.
