The 2018 Amici Pinot Noir opens with aromas of dark cherry, blue fruit, plum, and rose petals.
This medium-bodied pinot noir has a lush and silky mouthfeel, with notes of chocolate cherry liqueur, umami, and brown sugar on the palate and a savory finish.
2018 was truly a winemakers’ vintage, and the quality of the resulting wines presents itself in bottle. Generous rainfall in February led to a late budbreak and extended flowering period. Beautiful and mild weather throughout spring and summer made for a healthy crop load. With no major heat spikes or weather events in the fall, winemakers were able to patiently wait to pick at optimal fruit ripeness.
Aromas of dark cherry, blueberry compote, and plum complimented with subtle notes of rose petals and menthol. The mouthfeel is lush and silky, coating with refreshing acidity. Raspberry and chocolate cherry liqueur turn into a strong, fresh finish that trails off with hints of umami, brown sugar and savor herbs.
