Toulouse Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir 2018
Anderson Valley, CA
When we discover an amazing Pinot like this, produced by an under-the-radar, boutique winery, we get SO excited! We can't wait to introduce it to our customers! Toulouse Vineyards, in Northern California's Anderson Valley, has shown just how GREAT Pinots from this region can be. This wine is nicely balanced, with just the right amount of fruit, earth, and spices. Oh, is it GOOD! It's one of those wines that just make you close your eyes and say, "mmmmmm!"
FROM THE WINERY
The 2018 growing season started with a warm spring, along with some much needed rain. Ideal summer temperatures brought the acidity and flavor profile of the grapes to a perfect balance. Aged for 12 months in primarily French Oak barrels with a Hungarian Oak addition, our 2018 Estate Pinot Noir embodies everything we love at Toulouse - great acid, a good amount of spice, brightness and a soft, velvety finish. Aromas of ripe cherry, black plum and pomegranate fill the senses, followed by vibrant flavors of dark fruits, cola and warm baking spices.
This wine is tasting great now, and will benefit with some time.
