2017 Olema Sonoma County Pinot Noir

SKU #1394859 92 points James Suckling

 Plenty of red fruit with dried strawberries, as well as decadent meat and hints of earth. Medium body and firm, silky tannins that melt into the wine. Fresh finish. Vivid pinot. Drink now.  (5/2019)

Connoisseurs Guide

 Sweet and spicy oak makes a significant contribution here, but it is met by a good bit of cherry-like fruit in both scent and taste and never threatens to become this one’s defining trait. The wine is medium-full-bodied and slightly fleshy in feel and stays within focus all the way to its lingering, properly firm finish, and it ranks high among comparatively inexpensive Pinot Noirs for both its careful balance and varietal integrity. *One Star, Good Value*  (5/2019)

Jeb Dunnuck

 Moving to the reds, the 2017 Pinot Noir Sonoma County reminds me of a solid Côtes de Nuits and offers lots of juicy cherry and strawberry fruits, medium body, bright acidity, and a complex, floral character that comes out with time in the glass. It’s another no-brainer value ideal for drinking over the coming 2-3 years. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it keep even longer.  (1/2019)

This lively, brighter style of Pinot Noir is both lovely in texture and unusually complex, at this price point. Overtones of bright strawberries and undertones of fresh oak and clean earth add complexity along with a finish that has nice spice and a hint of minerals. Integrated tannins make it easy to drink, a little too easy. It's the best of both worlds...lush fruit and lower tannin, with the added bonus of brightness and spice. Win, win! (P.S. The Chardonnay is also very, very, good and I don't often say that about Chardonnay!).
