Banshee Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2018

$21.99

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 2018 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.

Just tried the ‘18, winery founded by 3 friends Noah Dorrance, Baron Ziegler, & Steve Graf who shared a lifelong dream of owning their own winery. First vintage of Pinot Noir, produced in 2009 was sold out in 3 months. Deep Ruby with red berry fruit aromas & notes of floral scents. On the palate ripe red plum, currant & cherry flavors with pepper spice. Soft tannins, good balance with acidity, medium+ ending with a mineral character. Drink now, as with prior vintages no aging potential!

I think this isn’t my favorite vintage but Banshee remains a delight. Cherry Vanilla Coke for the wine lover. Texture of silk weight of...let’s call it thin wool. Soothing. Just interesting enough to keep me going and effortless enough to pay attention to my date.

Pale ruby color. Aromas of cherry Vanilla Coke, raspberry and cedar. Delightful! Red fruit on the palate with a gorgeous silky finish. Banshee never disappoints. @Ellen Clifford -I agree with your notes!

It’s disappointing for banshee. I used to love this wine but it gets more and more bombastic every year. Acidity is still OK but too much cherry
