2014 Olivet Lane Vineyard Pinot Noir
SF Chronicle Gold Medal Winner
The 2014 Olivet Lane Estate Pinot Noir displays the exceptional elegance granted by this venerable vineyard. This wine’s aromatic complexity and fruit flavor density belie its structural delicacy. Intricate aromas of dark cherry compote and macerated strawberries are generously spiced with allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Vivid, concentrated flavors lead with black cherry, pomegranate, espresso, and chocolate, trailed by bright and persistent cherry cola and savory bacon. The refined mouthfeel shows splendid silkiness and creamy richness across the palate, precise acidity and superb length.
