Estancia Pinot Noir 2018
Estancia relies on the benefits of boutique-style winemaking techniques including whole-berry fermentation, gentle punch downs and basket pressing for their estate grown Pinot Noir. The Monterey based winery uses only native yeasts to increase aromatics and gentle gravity flow systems to minimize aggressive tannins and bitterness. This hand-crafted approach results in Pinot Noir with soft, luscious aromas and flavor and rich, deep color. Notes of dark berries, black cherry and caramel accent the allspice, rose petals and soft hints of vanilla. Flavors of ripe blueberry, black cherry and plum balanced by rich creamy vanilla leading to a smooth lingering finish.
