Roar Sierra Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017
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 EnthusiastRich and ripe in aromas of red cherry, caramel and oak, this bottling is made elegant and complex from the crushed slate and stony qualities that thrive throughout. A concentrated Bing cherry flavor rings on the bone-dry palate, lifted by mint and more chiseled stone. This is amazingly ripe and delicious, yet hewn with impressive minerality.
Wine SpectatorRich and plush, revealing a sinewy power to the dried cherry, macerated plum and red currant flavors. Luxuriantly spiced, with a long, creamy finish of cardamom, dried ginger and chocolate hints. Well-crafted and elegantly styled. Drink now through 2025. 686 cases made.
