Artesa Estate Reserve Pinot Noir 2013

SKU 64050


Delicate aromas of raspberry, cherry and strawberry set the tone for this beautiful Estate grown Pinot Noir. The flavors are carried through on the palate accompanied by bright acidity giving the wine superb balance on the palate. There is a hint of classic Carneros rose petals and violets lending a nice floral component. The oak is subtle with a light toasty flavor behind the forward fruit. "The 2013 is a really elegant Pinot Noir that amazes the senses and continues to evolve in the glass -it's one of my favorites to date."

Wine EnthusiastDense and concentrated, this smoothly rounded wine is well integrated and robust in oak and black cherry, a nice representation of estate grapes. With a strong presence of tannins, it needs to breathe before being enjoyed with earthy fare.

Wine SpectatorThe tannins are the prominent feature, but there's ample richness, depth, body and flavor. The core of blackberry and wild berry is juicy before turning dry and tannic. Drink now through 2020. 2,300 cases made.
