2015 Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir

42.00

This Pinot Noir is a wine of beauty and elegance, with aromas of black cherries, delicate rose petals, and cranberries.  It is highlighted by subtle undertones of forest floor with flavors of dark red and black fruits to round out the bouquet.  On the palate, this Pinot Noir is savory with bright acidity adding length to the clean finish.

“Layered and intricate, this plush and complex  wine is a beauty. It starts with   enticing  aromas  of  black   cherry and clove, while  more  cherry and spice  character unfolds on the  palate and  a broad, rich  texture coats  the  mouth. Everything is smooth, well integrated and tasty.”

“Limpid red. Musky red berries, potpourri and a hint of incense on the incisive, smoke-accented nose. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, raspberry and rose pastille flavors that open up and acquire a subtle herb nuance with aeration. Shows very good energy and repeating florality on a very long, energetic finish shaped by smooth tannins.”

“The Theopolis Vineyards Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir, which was overseen by the talented Ed Kurzman, who has made Freeman, August West and Roar wines, has plenty of stuffing and richness to impress with the vintage’s ripe concentration on display, but with smooth textures, soft tannins and a dense mouth feel, it’s easy to love and will be a wonderful early drinking Pinot. This cool climate wine has a poised feel, in fact it’s quite opulent and decadent with juicy red fruits and polished French oak on point with sweet raspberry, plum and black cherry fruits, wildflowers, vanilla, a hint of lavender and a touch of briar spiciness. While most known for their wildly good Petite Sirah, these Pinots are showing extremely well and should not be overlooked, Theodora Lee has really created a distinct set of wines and her winery is one to follow, each of this latest set of wines has a sense of grace and are full of California warm and up front flavors, immediately approachable and with a joyous hedonistic appeal. Only 110 cases were made of this ripe, 14.4% alcohol, native yeast ferment Pinot Noir, it is starting to hit it’s sweet spot, but should provide nice drinking pleasure for the next five plus years with ease.”
