Three Sticks Price Family Estates Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
The Price Family Estates Pinot Noir is what we like to call our winemakers’ wine. Selecting the best grapes from each of our estate vineyards, this Pinot Noir expresses the vintage and the diversity of Sonoma Coast through Bob and Ryan’s unique lens. We highlight the strengths of vineyards such as Walala, Durell, and Gap’s Crown, leading to a cohesive and ambrosial illustration of our iconic properties. The 2018 is lively on the palate - raspberry and rhubarb compote are coupled with black cherry. A mild barrel toast complements the fruit perfectly, with a long, luscious finish.
Lithe and fruity, with crushed red plum, raspberry and cherry tart flavors, loaded with rich, spicy accents. Ripe midpalate, featuring a finish that turns creamy, backed by medium-grained tannins.
The 2018 Pinot Noir Price Family Estates offers a slightly more complex, almost herbal style that carries solid red (and black) fruits intermixed with plenty of black tea, forest floor, earth, and spring flower aromas and flavors. It's medium-bodied, nicely textured, has integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s another satisfying, complex, outstanding Pinot Noir from this team.
Blended from a selection of estate sites, from Walala and Gap's Crown to Durell, this red is hearty in blue fruit, black cherry and earthy forest floor. Burly tannins wrap around the dense core of length and expanse-a bold statement of a wine.
The 2018 Pinot Noir Price Family Estates has a medium ruby color and scents of crushed black cherries, lilac and forest floor with nuances of mint leaves, pepper and oolong tea. Medium-bodied, it offers spicy flavors in a smooth frame with addicting juiciness and a long, nuanced finish.
