PAUL LATO PINOT NOIR "ATTICUS", JOHN SEBASTIANO VINEYARD, STA. RITA HILLS 2015
NVWE Notes: Altogether flashy, the nose of this knockout Pinot pours-forth super-deep Bing cherry, dark cherry, pomegranate, black raspberry, spiced red plum, berry cobbler, Chai tea, dried herb, hazelnut and humidor-spice scents. It is palate-coating and weighty in the mouth, where dried orange peel and cranberry accent a deeper core of dark cherry, plum cobbler, baking-spice, star anise and sweet pipe tobacco flavors. Airing amplifies everything, both firming the wine’s backbone and enlarging the flavor profile, so the finish is of a wave of cherry, strawberry, plum, whortleberry, red currant, pink rose, pink peppercorn, sumac berry, black tea, ginger snap, star anise and humidor-spice flavors. Piquant zest keeps this hedonistic fruit in focus. Wonderful already, it is likely five years at least from it’s peak.
