Road 31 2019 Pinot Noir
This wine has been a fun wildcard as it evolved in barrel, sometimes showing more mellow dark-fruit flavors, and other times seeming to have a red fruit zip reminiscent of some of my morelively past vintages. But as we approached bottling, the wine settled into an elegance of vanilla and ripe fruit on the nose with an incredibly-pleasing dark-fruit weight on the palate. Slightly lower acid than previous vintages, it’s still a wine designed for food, but this vintage maybe warrants a glass in the afternoon before the feast too.
