Tasting Notes

2016 Lester Pinot Noir

2016 Lester Pinot Noir

Dark, rich fruits of red cherry and blackberry. Sweet, creamy oak. Incredible finesse around all the corners.
May 2018 Wine Enthusiast, 93 points "... The bright acidity pops on the palate, then settles into the background to allow flavors of crushed cranberry and pomegranate to mesh with nutmeg and allspice on the palate..."
