WAYFARER PINOT NOIR WAYFARER VINEYARD FORT ROSS - SEAVIEW SONOMA COUNTY 2016

Wine Enthusiast

95 Points

This estate-grown beauty is succulent and supple, with a tense body of bright wild strawberry, crushed rock, dried lavender and Asian spice. Robustly rich and deeply layered in flavor and texture, it finishes in a gorgeous dabble of white pepper. VIRGINIE BOONE 11/1/2018.

NVWE Notes: If a tad shy of it’s 2015 sibling in drought-year richness, this stunning Pinot offers an even more perfect representation of this great vineyard. A chiseled nose layers concentrated notes of pomegranate, red raspberry, whortleberry, Italian Maraschino cherry, cherry pit, Mr. Lincoln rose, pink peppercorn, baking-spice, taffy and nut husk over mineral salt undercurrents. It is is at once tongue-coating, sinewy, texturally racy and piquant in the mouth, where a denser, vibrantly youthful, yet even more elegant push of the same fruits and spices rolls-out. The finish is ultra-long, sleek and penetrating, yet never less than charming, and carries a deep strain of sour red cherry at it’s center. Focus and grip aplenty are notable from start to finish, and this already stunningly delicious Pinot will surely be a great wine some time in the future: perhaps in five years? 1500 6-packs made.
