Aubert CIX Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
For a young Pinot Noir, the CIX shows incredible sophistication. Irresistible aromas of rose petal, sweet dark cherries, blood orange and Asian spices. This aristocratic wine moves across the palate with authority and ease showing perfect acid integration and polished tannin. There is an inner perfume that along with a sense of crushed mineral gives the CIX a great sense of place. The 2015 should follow a slow intriguing evolution.
Suggested drinking window is 2018 through 2030.
