DOMAINE DE LA CÔTE PINOT NOIR "BLOOM'S FIELD", STA. RITA HILLS 2014
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Domaine de la Côte's 2014 Pinot Noir Bloom's Field is terrific. All the elements come together effortlessly. The 2014 is lifted and translucent, as these wines always are, and yet there is more than enough depth through the mid-palate and finish to give the wine harmony and texture throughout. Rose petal, mint and chalk add freshness to the vibrant, red-fleshed fruit notes.
NVWE Notes: Racy and sophisticated, the aromas of this lovely wine are a brightly focused perfume of strawberry, Maraschino cherry, red plum, grenadine, red currant, watermelon, pink rose, cinnamon “red hots”, sumac berry, pink peppercorn and white chocolate-dipped orange. It proves as vivacious and sleek in mouth-feel as expected, with subtle ‘structural’ tannins, quiet zest and lots of sweet-savory counterpoints to the fruit. The finish fans-out with Maraschino cherry, kirsch, grenadine and strawberry at center stage while notes of orange zest, peppercorn, baking-spice, sandalwood, coriander seed, celery seed and star anise hold steady in support. Classy dinner wine already, it is likely to improve for a few more years. 508 cases mad
