Kesseler's standard-label Pinot Noir is gorgeously perfumed with notes of violet, spice and vanilla that meld seamlessly into a backdrop of concentrated black cherries and plums. It's lavishly oaked, yet elegantly composed with brisk sour-cherry acidity and integrated alcohol. Delicious now, but should settle nicely through 2019.
