Fess Parker Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2017 Review

This is one of those uncomplicated, easy drinking Cali Pinot Noirs that checks all the boxes. Tart cherry aromas and maybe some soil, a viscous mouthfeel making you want to chew the wine, and high alcohol for a slight burn. For a wine with a very high production it’s still a good bet for a dinner party or backyard to do.
