Eric Kent Appellation Series Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Pinot Noir is rarely this characterful or complex at a such an accesible price point. Chalk it up to a secret True Sonoma Coast vineyard source and the remarkable 2018 vintage but we can't help but blow our horn a bit on this one. Loaded with a ton of juicy red and black fruit and accented with subtle Asian spice and just the right amount of high quality French oak. This inaugural bottling is already very pleasing and we're certain it will reward some near to mid-term cellaring (if you can keep your hands off it). Sonoma Coast Pinot lovers will not want to miss this delicious gem.
A crunchy texture accents the cherry tart, raspberry and red plum flavors, backed by fresh acidity. Hints of cola and beetroot linger on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 590 cases made.
