2016 MATIAS ROSELLA’S VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
Winery Notes: “Deep ruby red in color, the bouquet opens with Huckleberry jam and black cherry followed with charcuterie and asian spice. This pinot boasts incredibly concentrated red and dark fruit that lingers, silky textured on the palate. A wine capable of long term aging, every sip offers new nuance.” 197 Cases Produced

Extended Tasting Notes from Edward, “I should probably start by saying, you have to be deeply connected to source fruit from this esteemed vineyard. It’s coveted fruit guarded by Cult Wineries, and after you enjoy your first glass, you will be thrilled by the quality… This Matias Pinot Noir is so elegant, so refined and sophisticated that it reminds me of how delicate and lovely this fruit is. Soft silky texture of Strawberries and Rose Petals glide seamlessly across your palate… with hints of cranberries, cloves, and honey it’s quite delightful. A refreshing finish with bright acidity makes this Foodie’s Dream Wine. I personally chill it in the fridge for about 15-minutes before serving, and I can sip on this one every day, all day. This is first-class Pinot Noir at it’s best, and Winemaker Dan Fitzgerald is completely dialed-in here, and I highly recommend that we all grab a case while available especially at this VIP price. Small-production, one of the Healthiest Wines For You, and very limited… get as much as you can! Cheers!” CALIHIWINES 96 POINTS
