2017 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Vineyard Cuvée NatalieJoin To Purchase
Erin Brooks, The Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Cuvée Natalie Silver Belt Vineyard, from red volcanic soils with patches of iron oxide, has a beautiful perfume of charcuterie, gravel dust, dried rose petals and potpourri with touches of peppercorn and tea leaves over blackberries, black cherries, cranberries and dried red cherries. It's light to medium-bodied and elegant, offering intense flavor layers of spicy, amaro-tinged fruits with a soft frame of finely woven tannins and juicy freshness, finishing very long and flavorful.
The 2017 Pinot Noir Cuvée Natalie is endowed with serious concentration. Inky red and purplish berry fruit, cloves, new leather, lavender and menthol race across the palate as this sumptuous, full-bodied Pinot shows off its curves. This is a decidedly flamboyant style with tons of pure power and intensity in every dimension.
