N°3 Pinot Noir Reviews

Score: 90 | July 8, 2019 | Wine Enthusiast

Juicy, expansive and generous in cherry cola, orange peel and pomegranate, this is a profoundly rich, round and rewarding wine—a showcase of the varietal that’s hearty in tannin and oak but ultimately balanced in profile.

Coming from some top sites in Burgundy and in California, the 2016 Pinot Noir #3 is a beautiful effort that offers incredibly Burgundian aromas and flavors, yet is distinctly Californian on the palate. This beautiful effort gives up complex red fruits, forest floor, spice, and damp earth-like aromas. These carry over to the palate, where the wine is medium-bodied, seamless, and silky, with plenty of sweet California fruit balanced by terrific acidity, silky tannins, and a great finish. While I can struggle with these type of cuvées blended across very different regions, this is the real deal and is a brilliant Pinot Noir. It's going to evolve for 10-15 years.
