Truchard Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
A beautiful nose of pomegranate, rhubarb, and wild strawberry; highlighted with citrus blossom, tea, and earth. The mouth is silky; with bright flavors of cranberry, ripe plum, and sweet vanilla. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.
Coming from Carneros, the 2017 Pinot Noir is an attractive effort that has light cherry and spice-driven aromatics, medium body, moderate depth, yet good overall balance. It shines for its drinkability and should keep for a year or two.
