2016 Pellegrini "Charles Heintz Vineyard" Pinot Noir
From the storied Heintz Vineyard, the 2016 vintage provided for a wine that quickly became an in-house favorite. One is immediately engulfed in the imagery of walking through the forests of West Sonoma County. Pine needles, forest floor, all spice, sage and tarragon build an extravagant aroma. In the mouth, bright cherry, cranberry and red plum provide sweet but sharp fruit flavors to be complimented by a backdrop of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and worn leather.
