In the glass this Sonoma Pinot has a purple lipstick center that fades into rusty brick edges that’re wrapped by a beautiful fading halo….
The nose is a face-full of delicate red flowers and wet rose petal ———-> A second sniff pulls out a crushed flower and oak note that leaves me dying for a taste….
A taste starts lively with bing cherries and lemon zest before a bit of mushroom funk joins in to level things out a bit ———-> A chew and a swish sets the table for a mid-palate of black fruit and sweet pipe tobacco before this sexy little number enters into the third act with an impossible balance of cigar box and orange peel that creates an ending I never want to end….
The Withers Winery’s Pinot game is ON FIRE!!!!! This one from English Hill Vineyard on the Sonoma coast is a textbook example as to why ————-> Mind bogglingly, this little lady is a revolving door of fresh fruit, forrest floor funk, bright acid, and even tobacco smoke and I never want the bottle to end…. 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this gorgeous wine with beautiful jam like Lake Street Dive – Good Kisser
