Aether Pence Ranch Pinot Noir 2013
Medium ruby in color, this wine has aromas of sweet Pinot fruit mingled with damp earth and "stones and bones" - the mineral character I get from this vineyard. Made with 25% stem inclusion, there are cut flowers and cinnamon on the nose as well as other soil inflected characteristics. Typically wines from this vineyard can be a bit reticent when young, so decanting is encouraged. Other notes: savory flavors, serious but not stern, persistent.
