2019 Three Furies Wines The Angry One Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., $55 (sold as a three pack). · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Reticent but pleasant aromas of dark cherry, rose petal, and worn leather. An initial hint of volatile acidity quickly dissipates. Very accommodating on the palate with a range of vivid flavors including black cherry, blackberry, spice and cola. The wine sports a silky texture, polished tannins and an inkling of oak. The finish lingers with bold, aromatic goodness. Terrific when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. Score: 94. Reviewed April 25, 2022 ARTICLE »
2019 Three Furies Constant Vengeance Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., 120 cases, $85. Sourced from the 35-acre Rancho La Viña Vineyard planted to Pinot Noir. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Enticing aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, brisket, spice and a hint of espresso. A very luxurious mouthfeel is instantly agreeable. A mid-weight styled wine with a heady core of black cherry, dark raspberry and cola flavors with a subtle note of toasty oak. Nicely integrated tannins and acidity, with a quenching finish that leaves an impression. As Martin noted, “Constant Vengeance is impossible to resist,” and I agree. The wine is considerably more enjoyable several hours after opening and reaches a crescendo the following day from a previously opened bottle. Score: 93. Reviewed October 10, 2021 ARTICLE »
