94pointsWhitcraft 2018 Pence Ranch Clone 459 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

Editors' Choice

Very light in the glass, this wine explodes on the nose with aromas of freshly plucked raspberry, strawberry and cranberry along with wet sidewalk minerality and hints of sagebrush and pepper dust. The fruity qualities are more reserved on the palate, where fresh hibiscus and white-pepper flavors ride a tense structure, leading toward a cherry paste and sumac finish. Matt Kettmann
