Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Reserve 2016 (93 VM)

“Limpid ruby-red. Pungent cherry cola, black raspberry and candied rose aromas are complemented by building mocha and spice notes. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering juicy red and dark berry preserve and spice-cake flavors that deepen steadily through the mid-palate. Rounded tannins add gentle grip to the very long, spicy finish, which leaves boysenberry and cherry notes behind. 30% new oak.”

    The Pinot Noir Reserve comes primarily from estate grown fruit on Laurelwood soil in the Chehalem Mountains, including from some of Oregon’s oldest vines. It is hand crafted on a boutique scale, with tremendous attention to detail. An intense wine, it has an explosive nose of sassafras, coffee, sweet plum and spice box; a full and seamless palate with baker's chocolate, blueberry, lavender and tea; and a long and balanced finish.
