Coeur de Terre Heritage Reserve Estate Pinot Noir 2021

Sourced from the four Heritage blocks named after members of the Neal family and aged in 35% new French oak, the 2021 Pinot Noir Heritage Reserve Estate pours a deep ruby-purple hue and reveals expressive aromas of black cherry liqueur, lavender, and fresh herbs. Full-bodied, it's pure and ripe throughout, with a supple, silky texture, sweet tannins, and a long finish. It will be wonderful to revisit this very impressive wine as it ages and loses a touch of its baby fat. Drink it over the coming 8-10 years.
Fresh, clean red fruit and orange peel aromas mix with bits of cedar and hibiscus tea. The equal match of electric acidity and grippy tannins provides strong support for heaping helpings of cherry jam and aged balsamic flavors, along with traces of cedar and chalk. Enjoy now until 2031.
