This vintage shows deep, beautiful color and a classic nose of raspberry, with notes of sassafras, sandalwood and orange peel in the background. On the palate the wine is round and seamless, rich and supple, with great structure and nicely integrated tannins that promise a long life.
"This is a dazzling Pinot Noir, so gorgeous to drink for its rich, complex deliciousness. Yet appealing as it is now, there are multiple subtleties waiting to be discovered, and the wine has a fine future. Like all of Marimar’s Pinots, it’s a big wine—rich and extracted and dense in weight. The flavors veer towards ripe pomegranates, black cherries and sweet licorice, with hints of dark chocolate, orange peel and even the umami of charcuterie. Despite the weight, it magically remains lithe, like a ballerina leaping into the air. Drink now–2019, as it gradually ages."
