Roar Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
Highlighted by spice, leather and dark fruit notes with a bright edge, the 2016 Sierra Mar Pinot Noir combines richness with lifted accents. Dry sagebrush and hints of cedar mingle with rose petals over dense blackberry jam and ripe black fruit with a decadent palate and an expansive, mouth-filling finish.

Wine EnthusiastThe nose on this single-vineyard expression combines ripe red fruits of pomegranate and raspberry with spicy Red Hots cinnamon candies. Bright red currant and more raspberry flavors explode on the palate, where nuances of Earl Grey tea, potpourri and rose petal flavors make for a fresh sip.
Wine SpectatorFragrant and perfumed, with floral scents and wilted rose, plum, cherry and raspberry flavors. This is smooth most of the way, though gravelly tannins on the finish add traction. Drink now through 2023. 646 cases made.
