2019 Emeritus Pinot Noir ‘Hallberg’ Russian River
Winemaker Notes With a dynamic combination of acid, tannin, floral, fruit and spice notes, this alluring wine captures the complexity and character of our acclaimed Hallberg Ranch. Redolent with aromas of red plum, cherry, tomato leaf, sweet beetroot and pithy pomegranate it draws you in, beckoning a first sip. On the palate, the flavors are framed by supple, fine-grained tannins and succulent acidity, which add a bright, juicy quality to the lush red fruit flavors. As it evolves, layers of Mandarin orange zest, incense and dried flowers emerge, along with hints of clove and allspice that linger on the long, fascinating finish.
Wine Enthusiast - "Light, brisk and full of verve, this wine offers ample tannin to support the elegant layers of wild strawberry, black tea and orange peel that give it savory and fruity components that compel. Earthy undertones of tomato leaf and clove add to its complexity around a succulent mouthfeel of length and breadth."
