Sinor-LaVallee San Luis Obispo Pinot Noir 2014


SKU 371



Mike Sinor ekes out every last ounce of richness from his extreme coastal vineyard for this bottling, which shows mulberry and dark plum aromas along with loamy soil and dried rose petal. The flavors are equally hearty, evoking mulberry and black plum, but underlying black pepper, olive and herbal notes keep that ripeness in check. Its tannins are dense and the finish minty

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir San Luis Obispo has a touch Gevrey character in its masculine, mineral, black cherry and wild herb-laced bouquet. This gives way to a medium-bodied, rich and nicely textured Pinot Noir that still has a touch of oak to integrate. It should keep through 2022.
