Ponzi Vineyards Classico Pinot Noir 2016 (92 VM)

“Brilliant red. Fresh cherry and black raspberry scents are complicated by suave floral pastille, succulent herb and baking spice nuances. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering nicely concentrated, spice-tinged red and dark berry liqueur flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. Shows fine clarity on a long, penetrating finish farmed by silky, even tannins. 26% new oak.”
