Gallo Signature Series Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
|Brand||Gallo Signature Series|
Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2017 Pinot Noir delivers fragrant notes of red roses, spice cake and forest floor with a core of strawberry preserves, kirsch and raspberry pie. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy red berries and loads of earthy sparks plus great freshness, finishing with a satiny texture. 1,140 cases were made.
Primarily from the Gallo family's Olson Ranch, with 8% of the fruit sourced from Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, this voluptuous expression starts with inviting aromas of red cherry and vanilla that are cut by slate, soil and forest herbs. The hedonistic palate is oak-driven, offering vanilla, caramel and smoke flavors that wrap around the black cherry and cola core.
Moderately ripe and juicy, with dried raspberry, dark plum and cherry flavors that offer pastry accents. The spicy finish is lean and minerally. Drink now. 1,140 cases made.
