2017 Pinot Noir, Bentrock
Medium ruby with brilliant hints of crimson. Subtle notes of loose-leaf black tea and black cherries showcase this wine’s unmistakable Bentrock pedigree. Pomegranate aromas round out the explosive nose. On the palate the wine shows a disarming mix of vibrant acid and velvety tannins. Flavors of hung meat, dark fruits, and allspice dominate. This is serious wine that shows a wild perfume of musk and spices and dense, dark flavors. Enjoy now for its truly seductive personality, or age for another 3 to 5 years to bring out the more savory notes that characterize Bentrock Vineyard.
