2013 Balinard Vineyard Pinot Noir
The Balinard is always one of our most masculine wines, and the 2013 shows great structure and poise immediately out of the gate. Bright aromatics, rich texture, and firm tannins guide this wines to a satisfying, lingering finish.
Aroma: The nose is initially somewhat shy, light aeration yields a heady aromatic mix of dark red fruit and sweet violet. Crushed redcurrant, sweet violet, freshly-tilled loam.
Palate: While In the mouth, young, chalky tannins restrain more exuberant flavors of warm plum and red stone fruit. These tannins and the generous acids typical of this site guide the palate to a penetrating, woodsy finish.
