Sostener Pinot Noir 2014
|Appellation||Santa Lucia Highlands|
Wine EnthusiastA sustainably minded, fairly priced bottling from veteran producers in the appellation, this vintage works well. Black cherry and smoked pork mark a very oak-driven nose that's prominent but not overdone. The smoked-fruit aspect carries to the palate, where cola, pomegranate and bramble are quite flavorful and dusted by crushed fennel seed.
Wine SpectatorFirmly tannic and dry at the core, but with enough spicy berry fruit to please. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.
