2017 Pinot Noir - Cahill Lane
8 bottle maximum
From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 12/19/19 Issue: "Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane has a broody nose of sliced blueberry, black cherry and warm blackberries with cinnamon, nutmeg, tree bark and amaro accents plus crushed red cherries, raspberry jam, warm strawberries and dried flowers. Medium-bodied and silky, it fans out in the mouth with lush, concentrated fruits and tons of spicy and earthy accents, with a firm frame of grainy tannins and very juice acidity, finishing very long and layered." 93pts.
From Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard is soft, creamy and voluptous, all of which give it tremendous raciness and immediacy, especially for this wine and given its bottling just two weeks before I saw it. Ripe red cherry/raspberry, mint, chalk and floral notes abound. The Cahill Lane is surprisingly, shockingly open at this stage, not that that will be an issue of any kind." 92pts.
