2016 Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir
ALC 14.2% Cases Produced: 100
True to the fruit, with red cherry on the nose and notes of ripe raspberries and strawberries. Well rounded and pleasant with a bold structure. The opulent ripe fruit allows for a juicy finish on very silky tannins.
The home of Domaine Divio, selected by winemaker Bruno Corneaux as he believes it offers the best terroir from which to make the perfect Pinot Noir. From the air it appears as an island that has broken off from surrounding landmasses. Willakenzie marine sedimentary soil is relatively uniform throughout the AVA and the lack of underground water limits vigorous vine growth.

(Editors’ Choice) “A bright aroma of raspberry jam underscores a core of wet rock. There’s a light saline note of oyster shell on the palate, with well-rounded flavors of rich cherry and chocolate that extend through the finish. Though it may sound like an odd mix, this is flat-out delicious.”
