Pali Wine Company Pinot Noir 2020
|Brand||Pali Wine Company|
This two county blend is made from 100% Pinot Noir grown on vineyards in both Sonoma and Santa Barbara Counties where we control the entirety of the farming process. This wine showcases California Pinot Noir at its finest. The grapes for this wine are grown using high quality standards, employing only sustainable farming practices. This wine is carefully crafted by our winemaker, using the same techniques employed in our more expensive offerings. Bottled after 10 months of barrel aging, using less than 20% new French Oak.
Plum red color with brilliant clarity. Aromas of fresh raspberries, strawberries, and anise along with hints of cedar and dried mushrooms. Fruit and earth flavors swirl on the palate with enough acid and tannin to provide a long, pleasant finish. Lingering earthy flavors of black tea and cinnamon.
This blend of grapes from the winery's estates in Santa Barbara and Sonoma shows of how distinct sides of the state can contribute to a complex wine. Aromas of dark plum, herb and light peppercorn on the nose lead into pomegranate, black raspberry, red rose and lavender flavors on the palate.
