2015 X-Novo Pinot Noir.
Pronounced, juicy aromas leap out of the glass: crystalline raspberry and blackberry, and stewed plum are accented with tea leaf, orange zest, cocoa, and sarsaparilla character. The seamlessly integrated palate is generous and plush, with a silky-satin texture, mouth-watering acidity, and ripe tannins. With complexity and a long finish, enjoy this wine immediately or cellar through 2022.
