Masut Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016 (750ml)
Tasting Panel 93 Points!
Brothers Ben and Jake Fetzer, the grandsons of Barney Fetzer, founded this brand, which is named for a Native American word that translates as “dark, rich earth”; located in the mountainous Eagle Peak appellation, it remains the sub-AVA’s only winery. Aged 12 months in 32% new French oak, this silky red starts off with cherry, chocolate, cinnamon, and oak on the nose. Flavors of soy sauce, peppered fennel root, and coffee bean emerge through mineral-driven soil as blueberry and cherry notes are enveloped in a vanilla core.
Wine Enthusiast Review
Generous dark-fruit flavors join leafy earthy complexities in this very rich and full-bodied wine. It has a soft expansive mouthfeel, moderate tannins and a great sense of concentration on the palate and through the long finish.
