Emeritus Vineyards Hallberg Ranch Pinot Noir 2018 Review

This is a Sonoma gem. Coming from vines planted in 1999 with a maritime influence, these vines are deep in the earth, enjoying a long draw of water and nutrients from at least twenty feet below. The result is this wonderful wine. On the nose classic cherry aromas waft up along with some dead-leaf-earth and mushroom-like umami (a distant barnyard?). The palate has high natural acidity making the wine lithe and fresh. Such a well-balanced wine.
