2018 "Mid-Elevation" Pinot Noir
Mendocino Ridge, CA
Drew Family Wines
What we love
The 2018 “Mid-Elevation” Pinot Noir is absolutely gorgeous. Elegant and nuanced, the 2018 is wonderfully translucent and yet, there is plenty of depth too, a combination that is super-appealing in my book. Freshly cut flowers, bright red/purplish fruit, mint and chalk all run through this wonderfully inviting Pinot. This is such a classy wine.
