2018 Holdredge Wines Pinot Noir Petits Cadeaux

From the Martaella Vineyard in the Russian River Valley and all destemmed, the 2018 Pinot Noir Petits Cadeaux sports a vivid ruby hue as well as a beautiful bouquet of candied strawberry and raspberry fruits interwoven with plenty of spice, scorched earth, orange zest, and a kiss of background oak. With notable purity, medium body, and a fresh, focused texture, it's going to benefit from a year or two of bottle age and should have 4-6 years of prime drinking.

2018 Holdredge Wines Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard

From a great site in the Russian River Valley, the 2018 Pinot Noir Rochioli Vineyard was all destemmed and spent 11 months in 25% new French oak. Bright cherry, strawberry, and blood orange notes dominate the bouquet, and it's pure, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate. It shows more spice and violet notes with time in the glass as well as building tannins. It's going to benefit from a year or three of bottle age and should see its 10th birthday in fine form.

2018 Holdredge Wines Pinot Noir Saralee's Vineyard

Beautiful red fruits (strawberries, raspberries), spring flowers, and violets notes emerge from the 2018 Pinot Noir Saralee's Vineyard and this puppy hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, lively yet integrated acidity, and silky tannins. Flawlessly balanced, with good concentration as well as length. It's hard to resist today, yet I suspect it's going to be even better with a year or two of bottle age.
