ANCIEN PINOT NOIR MINK VINEYARD, COOMBSVILLE, NAPA VALLEY 2017
NVWE Notes: Mink is likely Napa’s best Pinot vineyard and it is certainly the appellation’s most age-worthy and distinctive. The 2017 opens with focused scents of dark cherry, bottled cherry, pomegranate, dark boysenberry, red and pink rose, mace and sandalwood. It is as complex as promised on the palate, where youthful zest and structural tannins firm impressively concentrated fruit. Despite the wine’s notable backbone, things are actually more sweet-natured in the mouth, where red plum, red cherry, pink rose, pink peppercorn, star anise, mace and hazelnut husk flavors linger through an extremely long finish. Appealing now due to its balance and supple texture, it is certainly four years or more from its apogee. 258 cases produced.
