Beaux Freres The Upper Terrace Pinot Noir 2017
Its sweet earth and spice aromas always prevail, yet in this vintage they discovered a new bouquet of wildflower blooms — a welcome evolution, or perhaps a signature of the vintage. The palate shows hallmark depth and balance, with candied berry, granite, and a waft of expertly roasted coffee. Long, lithe tannins carry the composition to an electric finish. They noted several moments passed before full expression in the glass, promoting their strong suspicion of timeless cellar potential.
