Hamacher Pinot Noir 2017 Review

Pinot Noir is often called the heartbreak grape due its finicky nature in the vineyard as well as in the winery. When things come out just right it's to be celebrated. For this wine, Eric Hamacher says this was one of those vintages. Everything just hit right. The result? Soft and juicy with tart cherries and the slightest hint of oak. The acidity is racy breaking through the fruit core giving a light-ish body. The palate resists just enough giving a crushed velvet-like mouthfeel. A defining Pinot Noir.
