2017 Keller Estate El Coro Pinot Noir

 

Sitting at the ridgetop of the Estate, this vineyard's loam soils are very exposed to the Petaluma Gap wind. The twenty-acre Pinot Noir block is a jewel offering a trifecta of extraordinary complexity, delicate aromatics, and structured tannin.

The 2017 El Coro Pinot Noir shows an array of bright hibiscus, vanilla, damp earth, and dark cherry aromas. In the mouth, layers of classic flavors like black cherry, forest floor, and pomegranate encounter exhibits of red plum and cassis. The fine tannins are rounded out with a hint of cedar and cinnamon in the finish. There is a juxtaposition of intensity and delicacy with this wine.

A tasting with Erin Brooks of the Wine Advocate was hosted by Julien and Ana. We're proud to report just how much she liked our El Coro sighting an open nose with warm dusty earth over a core of bright berries. Silky and elegant, it offers lovely spiciness woven with a mesh of very fine tannin.
