Aubert UV Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

$155

Aubert's 2017 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard is pliant, open-knit and super-expressive. Sweet tobacco, cedar, mint, earthiness, dried flowers and cherry fruit are all laced together in this very pretty, nuanced Pinot. Despite its recent bottling, the 2017 UV is bright, lifted and super-expressive. The blend of Calera and Vosne-Romanée clones works beautifully. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

WNH Sonoma Coast Pinot tasting. I decanted this for almost two hours, consumed half, and then sealed and came back to it two days later. Strawberry everything, for the most part. Strawberry preserves topped with some black pepper, sage, lots of floral notes, and currant. Acidity is really nice on the palate, with a lifted profile yet rich. Not full on kirsch, but some added ripe black raspberries, plum, and herbal spice toward the finish. When I came back to this a few days later, it was much more expressive and had just a kiss of orange zest. Obviously young, but fun to try. I’d hold another 3+yrs, or decant for a couple hours.

One thing Aubert wines have in common is that they are all very different. This pinot is relatively extracted, and it shows on the nose and palate. Notes of red currants, cedar and flowers on the nose. Tannins are prominent and provide texture. Perfect balance and long sweet finish make this a textbook pinot. This will cellar for many years to come.
