Ponzi Vineyards Reserve Pinot Noir 2013
Wine EnthusiastThis bottling spent 20 months in French oak (30% new), and incorporates fruit from Ponzi's Aurora, Abetina and Madrona vineyards. Superripe aromas and flavors conjure up a rich and riveting mix of black cherry with amaro-like botanical nuances. This profound wine is already irresistible, but stash a few bottles in your cellar, to drink now through 2030.
Wine SpectatorFresh, focused and open-textured, layering plum, currant and crème fraîche flavors with the utmost delicacy. A light nudge of tannins underlines the impressively persistent finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,250 cases made.
