2017 Bee Hunter Mendocino County Pinot Noir
14.3% alc., $42. A blend from six vineyards in Mendocino County. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Substantial aromas of black raspberry, spice and mocha. Very polished with a gracious charge of purple and blackberry fruits framed with modest tannins and a compliment of oak. Easy drinking with a modest finish. This is a very good daily drinker. Score: 90. Reviewed February 7, 2021 ARTICLE »
