The heart of this Pinot Noir remains in the Russian River, albeit on the cooler side of the appellation, which shows a gracefulness and pristine red fruits. The Terra de Promissio component shows up with its hallmark chiseled, savory features. Those aromas however… goodness, it’s like “strawberries gone wild” at the time of this writing (1st half of 2020), along with crushed rose petals and cinnamon. There’s a gentle freshness on the palate, with more earthiness than the nose suggests; the red fruits here being framed by sous bois, mineral, and an underlying fabric of powdery tannins. This vintage is quite similar to 2017, but with even more striking aromatics and brightness in its step.
