2018 Frank Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Carneros
/ Single Bottle
This is California Pinot just the way most people like it: straight down the middle of the flavor spectrum, where the fruit is flashy but not syrupy. The acid is not taken over by oak and the floral elements rise and shine with the robins. The 2016 is from the Frank Family’s Lewis Vineyard located in Napa Carneros near the shores of San Pablo Bay. This 78-acre vineyard has 68 acres planted to Chardonnay and 10 acres planted to Pinot Noir. The wine was aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 33% new, 67% once and twice-filled. ·
Big dashes of black cherry, blueberry pie, pomegranate and naval orange, Intense and fiery. Sleek and foresty on the nostril. Great length for a wine at this price with complexity one would see in a higher end Pinot.
