2019 WALT Bob's Ranch Pinot Noir
"Rich and well-spiced, with concentrated cardamom notes to the ripe cherry and plum tart flavors that are long and plush. Plenty of pastry accents midpalate lead to caressing tannins on the finish."

|Vintage Notes||The 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.|
