Red Wine /// Pinot Noir // Santa Rita Hills / U.S.A.
For 12.5% alcohol, this is a very brawny and hearty bottling, starting with aromas of wild berry, smoke and pine needle. Leathery tannins frame the sip, where wild sage and eucalyptus flavors play against rich elderberry and forest berries. 93 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER
Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Bloom's Field features notes of gunflint, smoked meats, leather and fried herbs hints with baked rhubarb, warm cranberry, wild blackberry and black raspberry. Light to medium-bodied, it begins minerally in the mouth, segueing out to warm spice and restrained fruits, with a firm frame of finely pixelated tannins and seamless acidity, finishing long and savory. 93 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER
