PAUL LATO PINOT NOIR "SUERTE", SOLOMON HILLS VINEYARD, SANTA MARIA VALLEY 2015
NVWE Notes: Wonderfully deep and altogether distinctive, this year’s Suerte piles loads of savory spice upon luscious fruit. The nose is a rich perfume suggestive of strawberry cobbler, Cherries Jubilee, black raspberry, dried black cherry, Persian raisin, dried maple leaf, Chai tea, pencil shaving and sandalwood scents. Sweet strawberry and Bing cherry take center stage on the mid-palate, while chalky minerality firms the texture and sharpens the focus of flavors that closely mirror the nose. The finish is ultra-long and airing reveals additional notes of strawberry-rhubarb pie, pomegranate, Santa Rosa plum, pink peppercorn, sumac berry, tobacco, graphite and star anise. Exquisitely-balanced and gorgeous already, this thriller is five years or more from it’s full expression.
