In the glass, this Sta. Rita Hills Pinot has a black-garnet core with bricking edges that fade into a thin translucent halo….
The nose is full of raspberry jam and delicate lavender…. Another sniff brings out a meatier, bacon fat and mushroomy thing that leaves me chomping at the bit!!!
A sip starts silky smooth with puréed cranberries and black cherries before a blackberry BLAST shows up to lead the mid-palate into ripe plums and more of the mushroomy funk I got on the nose ———-> The ending brightens back up a bit with orange peel acid and racy cranapple before the wine finishes with a long coriander spice….
I LOVE Bonaccorsi Pinots!!! Vintage after vintage, vineyard site after vineyard site, these wines are all so different and SO DAMNED GOOD…. 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something racy and just a little dirty like The Black Crowes – Remedy
