2016 Last Light Wine Company - Derbyshire Vineyard Pinot Noir (91 pts) @lastlightwine 路 鈩癸笍 This wine is from San Luis Obispo County in California. The wine is 馃挴 Pinot Noir. The fruit is all sourced, and wines are tiny batches. Ferments have some stem inclusion, inoculated yeasts, a low percentage of new oak, and moderate alcohol profile路 馃憗 Medium ruby color with a pale rim路 馃憙 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of ripe crunchy red fruits, Bing cherry, red currant, raspberry, violets, rose, stemmy, earthy, and cinnamon路 馃憚 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, medium earthy tannins, medium+ alcohol (13.7%), and medium body. A medium+ length finish of flowers and bright red fruit路 馃敂 A very floral wine, which I find charming. The fruit gets that California sunshine that makes it ripe and delicious. The grapes were picked at the right time, preserving the acidity but not letting the alcohol get too high. That rose note carries from the nose all the way through the palate. Smart wine and nice packaging. Retails for $38 on their website.
