2016 Montinore Pinot Noir Red Cap
This venerable estate can put out some tasty wines, and this is a tasty example of their work. In fact, I think this is the best version of this wine in some years. Made with organic fruit and raised in barrel, including some new barrels, the surprise is that it costs so little.
From Vinous: "(raised in 58% Hungarian and 42% French oak barrels, 25% of them new) Vivid red. Spice-tinged raspberry and cherry and a touch of smokiness on the fragrant nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering gently sweet red fruit flavors that show firm cut and refreshing spiciness. Gentle tannins shape the clinging finish, which echoes the berry and smoke notes. --Josh Raynolds"
