Rich fruitful nose – SMELLS GOOD.
Great palate weight – DOESN’T FEEL LIKE WATER IN YOUR MOUTH.
Dark fruits followed by red fruits – CAN’T HELP YOU HERE.
Toasty vanilla + cooking spice – FROM BARREL AGING, MOSTLY.
Balanced fruit + acid profiles – FROM GOOD WINEMAKING!
The 2018 Lucky Rock County Cuvee Pinot Noir begins with a very pleasing aroma of black cherry, cranberry and a little strawberry plus cola and touches of cinnamon, mint and other spice. The medium bodied wine tastes great with a smooth mouthfeel and lots of really well integrated and long lasting spice to go along with the red cherry, black cherry and other red berry fruits. A great earthy undertone comes out on the mid-palate and leads into the long, dry, lingering finish of tart cherry fruit.
