CHALLEN PINOT NOIR "SCARLETT" SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 2018
NVWE Notes: Richly satisfying now, if clearly youthful, this Pinot has a future. The aromas, which grow in intrigue with airing, layer complex savory notes of dry dark rose, sumac berry, pink peppercorn, tobacco leaf, baking-spice, toasted grain, dried rosemary and a hint of mineral salt, above a coiled core of Italian Maraschino cherry, red boysenberry, red currant, strawberry jam and plum galette flavors. The finish is firm and lingering and, at this stage, the wine is best suited for service with dark roasts and wintry stews. It should grow in elegance and depth for the next several years. From fruit sourced entirely from the Pisoni Block of the Tondre Grapefield Vineyard, 415 cases produced.
