2016 Folktale Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 1.5L
Once allowed to open, the bouquet is richly aromatic with gorgeous notes of violets, roses, chocolate cherries, blueberry, strawberry, and vanilla. There’s the classic SLH minerality, akin to slate and pencil lead. There’s a hint of cola, and a bite of white pepper. This wine is decadent like red velvet cake, but well balanced with brisk acidity. Enjoy now, or let it rest in your cellar.
