N°22 Pinot Noir Reviews

Score: 95 | March 4, 2016 | Wine Advocate

The 2013 Pinot Noir No. 22 is a dead ringer for a grand cru Burgundy from the Côte de Nuits. Notes of forest floor, autumnal vegetation, spice box, blackcurrants and black cherries all drift up from the complex aromatics of this Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Believe it or not, there is something almost DRC-like in the aromatics of this wine, which makes me wonder what the clonal material was that Boisset was using, and what the source was for this wine. This is a stunner.

Smooth and seductively intense, this wine offers rich layers of black cherry and blackberry that lengthen on the palate, buoyed by soft tannins. An earthy sublayer keeps it complex and compelling. —V.B.
