Bernardus 2013 Soberanes Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands)

Cellar Selection

Minerality is front and center on this bottling, with concentrated pencil lead the focus, backed up by sandalwood and dried rose petals but no overt fruit. The palate offers ripe cranberries and buttered cherries, yet the graphite and iron mineral core remain prominent. Drink 2018–2028, allowing the fruit to blossom and slight star-anise warmth to emerge. Matt Kettmann
