2017 Mer Soleil Pinot Noir Reserve
With the alluring color of dark plums, this wine features scents of ripe cherries with cocoa, blueberry, toasted wood and a soft, powdery whiff old-fashioned lipstick. The palate is all about texture - entry is soft, with round, complete quality. Flavors of cherry cobbler mingle with cola notes and hints of anise. Tannins are structured yet extremely fine, providing a lush lingering mouth feel. On the finish, a wisp of acidity adds balance and freshness a reminder of this wine's origins in a cool, coastal region of California.
