Apolloni L Cuvée Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Wine SpectatorFresh and snappy, with low-key cherry and cinnamon flavors that finish with fine tannins. Drink now through 2023.
Wine EnthusiastA 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.
Wine AdvocatePale 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.
