Bernardus Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Rose petals, candied raspberry, watermelon Jolly Rancher and a touch of crushed slate show on the nose of this appellation blend. The palate offers fairly ripe cranberry-sauce flavors that are cut by orange rinds and framed with decent acidity and tense tannins.
Tart and trim, with vivid dusty blackberry and wild berry notes supported by grippy tannins. The flavors tail off on the finish, yet time may benefit this. Drink now through 2024. 4,800 cases made.
