Ponzi Vineyards Reserve Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Willamette Valley, Oregon- For nearly four decades Ponzi Pinot Noir has been critically acclaimed for its sensual aromas, elegant intensity and depth, layered black fruit flavors, hints of spice and its ripe, silky texture. This benchmark Oregon Pinot finishes with a velvety aftertaste.
Attractive ripe and pure red cherry fruit that is nicely framed in spice, conifer-forest and sweet-earth elements. The palate has a bold heart of concentrated red-cherry flavor and delivers a bold, youthful and succulent finish. Impressive. Drink or hold.
A refined, almost delicate sensibility is at work here. This is the most Burgundian of the high-end Ponzi Pinots, young and fresh and racy and tight. The bright raspberry and cherry fruit is compact and set up with balanced acidity and proportionate, ripened tannins. Notes of herb and citrus are in the background, as is the impact of aging in 30% new French oak. Drink 2024–2030. (Cellar Selection)
Expressive and elegantly layered, with vibrant cherry and raspberry flavors that are laced with Asian tea and spice notes. Drink now through 2028. 2,209 cases made.
