Sangiacomo Five Clone Pinot Noir 2021
|California, Sonoma County
Elegant and charming, the 2021 Pinot Noir Five Clone pours a transparent and youthful ruby and offers an attractive red floral perfume of candied roses, wild raspberry, and peppercorn notes. Medium-bodied, with a fresh spine of acidity, this fresh and vibrant red is refreshing and balanced, with crunchy red cherry, beetroot, and wet stone. This is an outstanding Pinot Noir to drink over the next 6-8 years.
Prominent notes of cedar and dill meet red cherries, cranberries and a rather tart and moderately tannic mouthfeel in this full-bodied, firm-textured wine. Time should loosen its grip and mellow its flavors into something special. Best from 2025.
Juicy and open-knit, with engaging pomegranate and damson plum notes wrapped in red licorice and backed by a subtle potpourri note on the finish. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now through 2026. 196 cases made.
