Santa Rita Secret Reserve Pinot Noir 2015
Wine SpectatorFruity and direct, with juicy red plum, cherry and raspberry flavors that are nicely attenuated by forest floor notes. The firm finish has some fleshy accents. Drink now. 15,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastA blast of fake-smelling clove is the dominant aroma on this sticky Pinot Noir. Clove returns as the singular flavor, while the finish is woody but not toasty or classy. This is uniquely one-dimensional, but in the wrong way.
