In the same ballpark, the 2016 Pinot Noir Bela's comes from the Russian River and spent 12 months in 35% new French oak. More classic sweet red fruits, forest floor, leather, and spicy incense notes all emerge from this complex, medium-bodied effort that has tons of charm. It too should keep nicely for 7-8 years.
Bela’s Selection Pinot Noir Reviews
Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Bela's Selection features warm black cherry, licorice, pepper and herbs on the nose plus notions of red and black fruit preserves and earth. Medium-bodied and silky with concentrated spiced fruits, it has a pleasant herbal quality, grainy tannins and a long finish.
