"I feel that the 2017 wines have the best natural balance we have seen out of a warm vintage since 2012. In spite of the heat the wines have terrific acidity, relatively low alcohol, and the different parts of our Estate show their personalities without being muddled by vintage." Ben Casteel
Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Noir Casteel has a pale to medium ruby-purple color. The nose features aromas of crushed cranberries and raspberries, rhubarb, black cherries and blueberry hints with nuances of violets, autumn leaves, dusty earth and bergamot. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated and spicy with chocolate-textured tannins, mouthwatering acidity and a long, layered, energetic finish. This is approachable right now and is utterly delicious.

This estate-grown, barrel select reserve has a pleasing brambly character to the ripe berry fruit, along with scents and highlights of truffle and cola. It's polished and ripe, though at lower finished alcohol than in past vintages. The balance and length, as with all of Ben Casteel's wines, are superb.

Polished and finely structured, with elegantly expressive raspberry, black tea and stony mineral notes that build tension toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2025. 397 cases made.
