Big tense layers of flavor dip into wild mint, strawberry and black cherry in this intense full-powered red. Cola and baking spice round it out and contribute complexity and length.
Bela’s Selection Pinot Noir Reviews
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Bela's Selection is scented of black raspberries, crushed black cherries and wild blueberries with touches of garrigue, baking spices and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied and plushly textured with plenty of freshness supporting the spicy flavors, it finishes with a peppery lift.
A blend from two vineyards in the Sebastopol Hills, this wine presents red fruit surrounded by black, mineral-inflected tannins. It feels bound up and austere, and while those tannins are unrelenting, even with a few days of air, they would stand up well to a grilled sirloin steak.
