91 Points – View from the Cellar

“The 2016 Anderson Valley bottling of Pinot Noir from Bravium is a classically cool and nicely light ruby color, with a very civilized 12.9 percent octane to match. The bouquet is quite refined, offering up a complex and red fruity mix of strawberries, cherries, a touch of beetroot, dark soil tones, incipient cola, discreet cedar and a whisper of Mendocino dill in the upper register. On the palate the wine is fullish, tangy and light on its feet, with a lovely core, fine soil signature, modest tannins and a long, vibrant and nascently complex finish. This is eminently drinkable out of the blocks, but will also age quite nicely and will be more complex with a bit of bottle age. Lovely wine.”
