Pinot Pack Bien Nacido & Solomon Hills
2018 Bien Nacido Estate Pinot Noir
You will feel like an adult in a candy shop drinking this wine. Its amazing how black cherry bubblegum and red rope vines can so well play off a damp earth and mushroom nose.
2018 Solomon Hills Estate Pinot Noir
Starting with the pale garnet color, this wine again will challenge some of the best wines of Europe when served side by side. Solomon Hills always tends toward the old world character with red currant buds, sweet cranberry and white strawberry preserve. The sandy soils always continue to show steeped green tea, mint and brown spices. With 30% whole bunch fermentation and only 30% new oak this is a high wire act. The savory and the fruit balance amazingly and will continue to do so for at least a decade from release.
