Tortoise Creek Mission Grove Pinot Noir 2017 Review

The fruit is a bit too ripe in this wine, giving the cherry notes a pruned-out feel. The alcohol is right though, and the acidity is good, giving the wine to decent structure. But the ripeness of the fruit takes away from the balance. Chill this bottle down a bit and sip it at house or pizza party and you'll be good.
