2018 RAEN Sea Field Hellenthal Vineyard Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $80. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Nicely spiced aromas of dark cherry and pomegranate with a fragrant flower contribution. Elegant and sleek with a hint of whole cluster exotica in a mid-weight style. Earthbound flavors of dark red cherry and boysenberry backed by juicy acidity and supportive tannins that add a hint of astringency. Noticeably more alluring when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. Score: 94. Reviewed July 28, 2021
