Aubert Ritchie Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
The opulent color and vibrant hues at the edge of the glass are indicative of the health of the wine and clonal material. Perfumed aromatics of strawberry oil and cherry compote offer a dynamic array of ripe red fruits. Time reveals secondary aromas of mint, freshly tilled soil and licorice. The palate is round and opulent with supple tannins and integrated acidity. Suggested drinking window is 2017 through 2026.
