2017 Manchester Ridge Pinot Noir
A bouquet of violets, strawberry laced with tomato leaf, herbs and peat are carried by sea smoke from this climatically challenged elevated sea cliff vineyard. Striving to survive, these vines overachieve with rewards of Rainier cherries atop spiced cookie dough, dried fruit and bitter orange in a prolonged march aided by balanced tannins and acidity along the palate. The combination evokes duende, the Spanish term for inspiring spontaneous emotional reactions.
