Banshee Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2017

$23.99

Hot new producer                    Banshee is the hot new California Pinot Noir producer. Try this new gem while it's still available. Antononio Galloni (Vinous): "The Banshee Pinot Noir (Sonoma County) is a pretty, attractive wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry and floral notes grace the mid-weight, feminine finish. This is a very pretty, understated appellation Pinot that delivers a compelling combination of quality, value and production. The Sonoma County is a blend of declassified barrels and some purchased fruit." Excellent Pinot Noir at an excellent price point is the holy grail in California wine. Banshee has aced it, sourcing from some of the best AVAs in California for their Sonoma County bottling that represents a best buy. The 2016 Sonoma County Pinot Noir is the sixth vintage from the enterprising team at Banshee Wines. A large percentage of it is still sourced from the Sonoma Coast, often declassified barrels from vineyards that close followers of top-tier West Coast Pinot may recognize.

I see why it’s so popular, easy drinking and probably satisfies lots of palates.

Definitely some oak but ripe fruity cherry and raspberry is prominent with some nice earth on the back end.

Medium ruby and tears. Strong nose on first opening, aromas of plum, cranberries, cherry, and cola. On the palate, medium tannin and acid with minerals, cranberry, and cherry. Very fruit forward with a vigorous temper; can easily stand up to chicken, pork, salmon or roast vegetables.
