The 2016 Pinot Noir No. 22 is medium to deep ruby-purple with a gregarious nose of baked blackberry and black cherry with savory notions of cracked black pepper, fried herbs, bay leaf and forest floor with potpourri hints. Medium to full-bodied with a soft, silky texture, it offers concentrated savory fruits, grainy-textured tannins and an evolving finish.
N°22 Pinot Noir Reviews
Earthy and layered, this rises from its oak tannins toward rich scents of red plums and a bristly note of conifer. The fruit is sweet but clean and light on its feet while the tannins need something with a lot of char on it before they’ll move into the background. JCB stands for Jean-Charles Boisset, the scion of the Burgundy wine family, who runs Boisset’s portfolio in California.
