Mer Soleil Reserve Pinot Noir 2017

SKU 3033


With the alluring color of dark plums, this wine features scents of ripe cherries with cocoa, pomace, blueberry, toasted wood and a soft, powdery whiff of old-fashioned lipstick. The palate is all about texture - entry is soft, with a 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.

Wine EnthusiastCooked berry and cherry aromas meet with slate and turned loam on the nose of this bottling. Dark-berry flavors blend with campfire smoke and more rich earth on the palate.
