The 2016 Meadowcroft Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley offers supple and unctuous, aromas of wild strawberry, violets, and slate come together seamlessly. Sophisticated, feminine, classic finesse—recommend this Russian River Valley Pinot Noir to any fan of the grape. The palate boosts lush, concentrated cherry cola, black cherry, and grilled plums flavors yet the bright acidity lingers. Lively and pleasant early, it develops steadily in the glass over more than two hours.
Very drinkable, round, and integrated; An expressive bouquet of typical aromas, followed up with a long, gentle, ethereal finish. This wine is beyond satisfactory. Perfectly proportionate impressions. From fruity/earthy, to perfumy and round. Unmistakable Pinot Noir with New World depth and Old World finesse.
