Tilth Pinot Noir 2017 (91 JD)

“The 2017 Pinot Noir is another terrific value from this label. Coming from a mix of clones, 80% destemmed, and brought up in 20% new French oak, it offers a fruit-forward, delicious style that carries loads of spiced strawberry and raspberry fruits, subtle notes of forest floor and bay leaf, medium-bodied richness, and a seamless texture. It’s an incredibly delicious, balanced Pinot Noir that will deliver loads of pleasure over the coming 4-5 years.”

    Jason and Hilary Driscoll met in Washington State and discovered their love of wine through Jason’s work as a chef and their determination to find the perfect wine pairings. What was supposed to be a brief once-in-a-lifetime harvest opportunity in between kitchens, turned into a passion and full-time job as Jason worked his way up through the cellars at Hunnicut Wines before becoming the Assistant Winemaker for David and Katharine DeSante of DeSante Wines. “DeSante University” immersed him both in the vineyards and the cellar. He learned everything from pruning to pump-building. Jason was exposed to lesser known vineyards, both old and new, that produced spectacular fruit. Inspired by the quality wines these vineyards produced, Hilary and Jason conceived Tilth Wines.
