2016 Points West Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley

$32.00

The 2016 Points West Pinot Noir is very complex aromatically, with earthy undertones and smells of strawberry preserves, blood orange, rosewood shavings, tobacco and pencil lead. On the palate this wine starts with flavors of dark cherry and black berry with a tart, but minerally back end. Medium tannins and 22 months in french oak barrels give this wine a polished and balanced mouthfeel, ready to drink now or cellar for the next 5-10 years
