In the glass this Mendocino Pinot has a dark garnet core with bricking edges surrounded by a pink lipstick halo….
The nose is CHOCK FULL of floral potpourri and rose petal ——-> another sniff shows a cranberry and blueberry smoothie thing and I’m on the edge of my seat….
A sip starts big and juicy with bing cherries and ripe red raspberries before some mouth coating weight brings a touch of grenadine to the party ———> The mid-palate throws cedar spice at me before red licorice and blackberries pave the way to a STUNNING cranberry and anise ending that leaves me craving another taste….
I LOVE Halcón Vineyards and this lil Pinot reminds me why ———–> This thing is big, juicy, and even a little weighty but still has enough acid and structure to level everything out…. You’ve heard me say it 1 MILLION times before but if you aren’t already on the Halcon train, you’re SEVERELY missing out!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with something big and zippy like O.A.R – Hey Girl
