Balletto Sexton Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 Review

It's kind of geeky but this wine comes from hill slopes that have a northern exposure. This is not the norm but for Pinot it makes sense. The result is a cooler vineyard, ten miles from the Pacific with good sun. All this is to say it brings the intensity and this wine shows it. It's very American with dense oak flavor. The palate is not dense, though, and has great natural acidity to lift the hefty fruit. Good solid American Pinot Noir.
