Ponzi 2005 Il Luce Vineyard Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

Il Luce is a new vineyard, adjacent to Abetina and just one acre in size. This young wine shares a similar high acid tang with its much older sibling, reminiscent of fresh orange juice, and the acids are wrapped into tannic, medium dark cherry fruit. Flavors of chocolate and espresso peek out behind the ripe tannins. The Abetina has more subtle depth, but this shares a very similar weight and balance. It promises good things in the future.
