Ernest Vineyards Cleary Freestone Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 Review

Pinot Noir loves moderate, cool temperatures and the fourteen acre vineyard this wine comes from lives in the the coolest area of the west Sonoma coast. The marine layer here lingers allowing the grapes to hang just a little bit longer to add some depth in the resulting depth in the wine. And depth is what defines this wine. It's expressive and heady, leaning into the earthy, savory side of Pinot Noir. It smells like cherries so ripe you just want chew it up. The palate brings a fruity element with racy acidity slicing through fruit core. With some added aromas of cloves you'll enjoy the slight tannin structure on this bottle. It's ready for food.
