Ceritas Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Occidental 2018

$98

Packed with a mix of dark cherry, currant and blood orange notes, revealing underlying sous-bois, black tea and mineral aspects as it gets to the finish. This is showing really well now but is well-structured, so it'll need some time to unwind fully. Hold off if you can. Best from 2023 through 2035.

Summary

Grape

Pinot Noir

This popular red grape originated in Burgundy but has spread across the New World. Like its white Burgundian counterpart Chardonnay, Pinot Noir is early-budding, early-ripening and thin-skinned. The sites where it tends to thrive can experience tough growing conditions, which lead to more rigorous fruit selection and lower yields. This is one of the reasons that high-quality Pinot Noir often carries a higher price tag than other wines.
