RAEN PINOT NOIR "ROYAL ST. ROBERT CUVÉE", SONOMA COAST 2017
The 2017 Pinot Noir Royal St. Robert is absolutely gorgeous. A wild array of floral and savory notes make a strong opening statement. Expressive and multi-faceted, the Royal St. Robert is positively dazzling from the very first taste. The interplay of fruit, whole cluster savoriness and structure results in a captivating Pinot that has more than enough pedigree to reward a number of years of cellaring. This is a brilliant showing. Wow!Drink 2022 - 2032. Antonio Galloni May 2019
NVWE Notes: This Pinot Noir is a tightly-coiled bottle of thrills. The nose is a vibrant perfume of blueberry, pomegranate, lingonberry, raspberry, violet, blood orange, pink rose, coriander seed, pink peppercorn, mace and nut husk scents that soar above a darkly savory background of sappy, woodsy scents. It shows chiseled focus, bright zest, fine-honed tannic grip and loads of youthfully expressive flavor on the palate, where fresh pomegranate, sour red cherry, cherry pit, Campari, cranberry liqueur, raspberry, blueberry, teaberry and blood orange, stay well above complex undercurrents of savory and “stemmy” spice notes. The finish is vivid and lingering and carries an exquisite dinner-balance which makes it an ideal match for seared duck breast and other fatty treats. Certainly five years from its full glory, it may still be evolving a decade from now. 1700 cases produced, Biodynamically grown,
