Wilde Farm Donnelly Creek Vineyards Pinot Noir 2015

$24.95

Earthy, savory and spice notes play off a core of rich, layered fruit in the 2015 Pinot Noir Donnelly Creek Vineyard. Nuanced and pliant, the 2015 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years, as the elements are already very nicely balanced. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Tom Casagrande Delectable Pro

This is well-done in a Burgundian style. Nose has bright, sappy cherry fruit, a little stemmy in a good way, some very Burgundian wet earth. In the mouth it’s bone dry, with just-ripe cherry and earth flavors initially and then crushed rocks and savory tones carrying it through to the finish, which has a very slight bitter note (it works). Nice acids. Medium body. Tannins are there if you wait and look for them, but they’re close to resolved.

Strawberry fields and stony river beds. An interesting waft. Light and flavorful, with alpine berries, some pine needle, flint stone vitamins, pomegranate seeds, wrapping up in pixie stix sharp acidity.

Solid cross between old and new world. Nice ripe fruit with earthy undertones. Would prefer a little more acidity.

Good, better because it was a steal from Garagiste!

Red fruits, soil, maybe chocolate? High acid, medium tannins. Balance. So good.
