El Pino Club The Cusp Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
|Brand||El Pino Club|
Aromas of concentrated bing cherry pie filling and bright cranberry are interwoven with soft vanilla, baking spices, spun sugar and a hint of gently worn leather. Bright bing cherry flavors on the front palate are balanced by a weightier yet elegant mid palate, which leads to a lingering, mouthwatering finish. The Cusp fully embraces the tension between Russian River fog and Sonoma sunshine. A proudly new-world Pinot, with a full, round body, packed with concentrated dark fruit, but beautifully balanced and unexpectedly complex.
Delivers accents of cinnamon to the medium-weight raspberry pastry and boysenberry flavors, which glide across the palate. The toasty finish turns creamy, with hints of allspice and dried wild herbs. Drink now through 2025. 1,000 cases made.
