Fragrant aromas of sweet black cherry, raspberry and rose petal introduce the rich, pure fruit of this fresh and lively pinot noir. Dense mid-palate flavors of ripe black cherry, red cherry, strawberry and plum, supported by fine, supple tannins, offer a layered complexity and glide into a round, long finish highlighting bright raspberry, cherry and mineral tones. Delicious now, this lovely pinot noir will develop additional complexity with another 3-5 years of bottle age.
Great fruit concentration and depth give power to this full-bodied wine from Cakebread, better known for its Napa-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Not tricked up with too much oak, it tastes energized, deep and layered. Black cherry, rhubarb and cedar fan out across the palate, lingering a long time on the finish. Best from 2018. Editors’ Choice.
The 2016 Two Creeks Vineyards Pinot Noir from Cakebread Cellars comes from two of their estate vineyards, 66% Annahala and the rest from Apple Barn. It has a beautiful bouquet, with aromas of dark cherry, red berries, sweet spice, loam, toasted oak and acacia flowers. On the palate this is has a dense, ripe core with delicious dark and red berries along with pomegranate, and plum flavors. Drinking well today, and should continue to evolve nicely with some short-term cellaring.
