J Vineyards & Winery J Black Label Multi Appellation Pinot Noir 2016
|Brand||J Vineyards & Winery|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Pinot Noir California is a multi-appellation wine, made up of fruit from Monterey, Sonoma and Santa Barbara counties, aged in 100% French oak. Medium ruby-purple colored, it hits the ground running with bombastic black cherries, mulberries, black raspberries and cinnamon stick notions with a waft of red roses. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with red berry and spice box flavors framed by plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing a little peppery. 100,000 cases produced. Drink Date: 2019-2022.
Wine EnthusiastSonoma County provides the majority of the fruit for this multi-appellation red, a bold, richly layered wine with grippy, gritty texture. Full-bodied boysenberry flavor upholds seasonings of licorice and cardamom, remaining velvety on the finish.
