Lingua Franca Pinot noir Hope Well 2016

Continue Shopping or Checkout

94 points Vinous: "Displays seductive raspberry preserve, exotic spice and rose oil aromas, along with hints of blood orange and dusty minerals. Juicy, seamless and energetic on the palate, offering densely packed red berry and floral pastille flavors that show excellent clarity and fan out steadily as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to a strikingly long, penetrating finish that shows superb red fruit- and spice-driven tenacity."

Our favorite Lingua Franca 2016 opens with a gorgeous, almost mysterious melange of rose, sultry-savory-spice tones, and pure Pinot perfume before showing off its layers of red fruits, from bright to dark. A study of how tension in wine is a beautiful thing, you will be enthralled by the interplay of energy and deliciousness moving gracefully from start to finish. From Mimi Casteel's thoughtfully, holistically interconnected Hope Well Vineyard, a source of vitality in the Valley. Not yet rated and nonetheless highly, enthusiastically recommended. - Marcus
