OFY! It smells amazing -- red fruit essence, spice and floral accents -- lifting right out of the glass and to your senses. Then it begins building...stacking luscious layers of texture and whole cluster complexity wrapped in pretty and pure red fruited Pinot glory. Elegance and depth to spare.
The Plow pays tribute to Lingua Franca's vineyard workers and growers, who use organic and biodynamic farming methods, striving to disturb the vineyard soils as little as possible.
2016 vintage notes
94 points Wine Spectator: "Harmonious and ethereal, with delicate complexity, offering layered black cherry and raspberry flavors accented by black tea hints and whiffs of orange peel and mineral. Drink now through 2024."
94 points Vinous: "Vivid red. Heady aromas of red fruit liqueur, baking spices and smoky minerals, with a sexy floral nuance building steadily with air. Offers bitter cherry, raspberry and rose pastille flavors that show excellent clarity and depth with little excess weight. Gentle tannins frame a strikingly long spice- and floral-accented finish that convey a suave blend of power and delicacy."
