Leading off two Pinot Noirs, the 2016 Pinot Noir Ida's comes from the Sonoma Coast and spent 11 months in 24% new French oak. It has a sappy, resinous, pine forest style as well as attractive black cherry fruits, spice, and a kiss of cola. Medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, with both high-quality tannins and acidity, it’s a beautiful, complex, layered Pinot Noir that should easily keep for 7-8 years.
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.
