95pointsSamuel Louis Smith 2018 Montañita de Oro Pinot Noir (Monterey County)

Editors' Choice

Aromas of black raspberry and boysenberry meet with plum, hibiscus and rose petal on the stunning nose of this bottling from a vineyard that's 1,700 feet high and rich in shale and granite soils. There's a tremendously compelling texture on the palate, where raspberry, violet and mint flavors lead into a long finish dusted lightly in baking spice. Matt Kettmann
