Morell-Peña 2017 Pinot Noir

Columbia Valley, Washington

Red wine from United States

Drinking window: 2019 - 2024

  • (from Solaksen vineyard, the same vines Morell sources for his basic Chardonnay and his sparkling wines): Light-medium red with a pale rim. Lively, varietally expressive aromas and flavors of raspberry, strawberry, sandalwood, nutmeg and rose petal. Supple, very dry and fine-grained, showing a lightly saline character and commendable restraint to its red fruit flavors. There's nothing at all hot-climate about this youthfully laid-back Pinot Noir. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and very good breadth and length. Impressive in an understated way.

    Stephen Tanzer. Tasting date: June 2018
