Waits-Mast 2019 Mariah Vineyard Pinot Noir
The 2019 Mariah is prototypical of this high elevation vineyard planted on a combination of Hugo and Josephine loams over a well drained Sandstone fractured Shale subsoil. Dusty, red fruited and spicy, it is simultaneously bright and lithe. Light on the palate, notes of bing cherry and black tea give way to a hint of vanilla crème through the finish. The acidity keeps the palate fresh and makes a great foil to heavier fare like a standing rib roast.
