The 2016 Foss Vineyard Pinot Noir is a knockout! Brimming with dark berries, the nose offers a wonderful spectrum of fruit-driven and earthy tones. Notes of cedar and a sous bois character mix with allspice and further add complexity and intrigue. Voluminous on the palate, this wine offers a beautiful balance of acid-to-fruit flavors. Typical of the site, the highly polished tannin give this wine a round mouthfeel. Flavors of oolong tea take over in the middle palate and an effusive cherry pit punch punctuates the finish.
