2017 Kanzler Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate Reserve

Lastly, the 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Reserve comes from the Kanzler Estate Vineyard in the Russian River and is mostly Pommard clone, and spent 14 months in 58% new French oak. Redcurrants, mulled strawberries, black tea, and foresty, earthy notes all emerge from the glass, and it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a balanced, elegant texture, present tannins, and a great finish. It's another outstanding, impeccably made Pinot Noir I'd be happy to drink any time over the coming 5-7 years.
