WALT Pinot Noir La Brisa (2017)
Vibrant ruby red in color, La Brisa Pinot Noir opens with hints of earth, crushed rose petals, and red fruits laced with a wild character. Strong flavors of crushed raspberry, cola, freshly turned soil, and tobacco linger on the palate. The texture is rich and leads into a warm finish with balanced oak and fresh minerality.

Rich and full of dense, concentrated dark plum, black currant, olive and dried savory herb flavors, featuring pencil shaving and cast iron notes. The pure-tasting finished is filled with baker’s chocolate accents. Drink now through 2025. From California.

The 2017 Pinot Noir La Brisa comes from a handful of sites on the Sonoma Coast and spent ten months in 40% new French oak. It's made in decent quantities and offers a first-rate bouquet of spice black cherries, wild strawberries, incense, forest floor, and spice. Rounded, nicely textured, balanced, and undeniably well-made, as well as delicious, it's ideal for readers looking for a high-quality Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir that offers fruit and texture.
