Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Classico 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
"Lithe and delicately expressive, with aromas of fresh violet, cherry and orange peel, opening to sleek and layered flavors that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2027." Tim Fish Wine Spectator 92 points Drink 2022-27
Ponzi's Tavola consistently out-performs reserve-level wines from elsewhere. Credit the outstanding vineyard sources, which include Ponzi's Avellana vineyard, and of course the skillful winemaking, which begins with native yeast fermentation. It was aged 11 months in 20% new French oak and has scents and flavors of Bourbon tea, cinnamon spice and black cherry fruit. There's plenty of power and a clean, fresh finish.
Sleek and vibrant, with lively raspberry and spice flavors that linger on a supple finish. Drink now through 2021. 12,000 cases made.
