Ponzi 2016 Pinot Noir "Classico" Willamette Valley


"This Ponzi Pinot offers brambly berry fruit wrapped in flavors of thistle and underbrush. It's textural and aromatic, with lavender, sage and dried herbs. Sourced from multiple vineyards scattered throughout the Willamette Valley, it saw one-quarter new French oak for 11 months prior to bottling." Wine Enthusiast 92 Points

"Brilliant red. Fresh cherry and black raspberry scents are complicated by suave floral pastille, succulent herb and baking spice nuances. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering nicely concentrated, spice-tinged red and dark berry liqueur flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. Shows fine clarity on a long, penetrating finish framed by silky, even tannins. 26% new oak." Josh Raynolds 92 Points

"Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Classico has inviting scents of mixed berry preserves, Earl Grey tea leaves, dust, earth and sweet spices with lovely floral notes. Medium-bodied and silky, it has generous fruits, a soft frame and lip-smacking freshness, finishing long and spicy. This was aged 11 months in 26% new French oak." Wine Spectator 91 Points
