Ponzi Vineyards Classico Pinot Noir 2016 (90 JD)

“Moving to the reds, the 2016 Pinot Noir Classico is a pretty, perfumed, and complex wine that offers lots of spiced red fruits, dried flowers, and forest floor aromatics, medium to light body, a solid core of sweet fruit, and a fresh, linear style on the finish. It reminds me of a solid Côtes de Beaune and should drink nicely for 4-5 years.”
