Apolloni L Cuvée Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Fresh and snappy, with low-key cherry and cinnamon flavors that finish with fine tannins. Drink now through 2023.
A surefire palate pleaser, this is toasty and forward, saturating the palate with creamy latte flavors of mocha and vanilla. The black-cherry fruit is there but definitely in the background, and the finish brings notes of roasted peanuts.
Pale ruby in color, the 2016 Apolloni L Pinot Noir Cuvée opens with fresh cranberries and stewed strawberries with grated cinnamon and nutmeg scents. Light to medium-bodied, it's red-fruited with overwhelming notes of sweet baking spice and tannins that are a touch astringent, although it offers refreshing acidity and a satisfying finish.
