Domaine Roy Pinot Noir Iron Filbert 2016 -- Pinotguy 94 Points
Regular price $125.00
Their top bottling is from the estate Iron Filbert Vineyard. Low yields, meticulous sorting and steady winemaking are producing elevated wines in a shorter amount of time than enjoyed by most startups. One can assume this is because by of Jared Etzel's experience with his father as well as his direct experience as a winemaker in California.
In any case, this wine is a glowing red color, with pure red and dark red fruits that really drench the palate with layers of flavor, with an emphasis on blackberry notes, which is the character of the 2016 vintage. It is expansive in the middle, showing admirable complexity as well as a rich texture, and it moves without diminishment into a long finish where fine tannins and soil notes emerge. The 2016 Iron Filbert is an impressive wine that can indeed by enjoyed now, but that will show better with a bit of cellar time. Drink now - 2022.
