2018 Tondré Wines Tondré Grapefield Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $43. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Well-scented, with aromas of cherry pie, baking spices and oak-driven vanillin and caramel. Black cherry and purple berry fruit flavors lead the way along with hints of spice cake and oak. Suave in texture, with balanced tannins and a gigantic finish that seems to last 30 seconds. Score: 93. Reviewed September 19, 2021
