Ken Brown 2016 Pinot Noir
This wine is a superb representation of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir featuring vibrant fruit aromatics and a rich profile. Expressive aromas of black raspberry and Bing cherry are highlighted by hints of earth, black peppercorn and a touch of oak. On the palate, hints of cherry cola, black cherry and spice give way to a velvety mid-palate and lush, lingering finish. Soft tannins and a balanced acid profile make this wine ready to drink now, though it will continue to develop with additional time in the cellar.
