TESSIER PINOT NOIR, SAVERIA VINEYARD, SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS 2014
NVWE Notes: Genteel, complex and notably “Santa Cruz Mountains” in personality, the nose of this pretty Pinot marries aromas of Maraschino cherry, red vines, strawberry candy, red currant, pink and yellow rose, toasted grain and some subtle herbal-foresty notes. It is both zesty and soft-edged on the palate, where sweet cherry and red vines notes take center stage over the floral-savory elements. The finish is lingering and, due to a chalk-like mineral strain, surprisingly dry. Tasty and dinner-worthy now, it should grow richer and a bit more exotic with another year or two of cellar-time. 140 cases made. Debut Release.
Very light in the glass and nimble throughout the sip, this is a promising young wine that may wind up quite excellent with some bottle age. Tightly wound black raspberry and strawberry fruit notes meet cinnamon, camphor and dewy eucalyptus on the nose, while the palate packs an array of thyme and bay leaf against a lighter cranberry fruit base.
