Ponzi Vineyards Aurora Pinot Noir 2017 (94 VM)

“Limpid ruby-red. A sexy, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, cola and candied rose, and a smoky flourish builds in the glass. Freshly, spice-tinged raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors show impressive depth as well as energy and turn sweeter with air. Finished juicy, supple and impressively long, with lingering spiciness and pliant tannins that fold smoothly into the wine’s lush fruit. 50% new French oak.”
