2017 Benovia La Pommeraie Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc.. · Dark garnet color in the glass. Shy aromas of black fruits, fruitcake, wine cave and vanillin. Full-bodied, well-ripened and fruit-driven, very similar to the Martaella Vineyard bottling. A hunky Pinot Noir with reigned-in tannins, welcome acidity, a suave texture and a lip-smacking finish. Impressive balance. Score: 93. Reviewed June 4, 2019
