2018 Cartograph Estate 115 Clone Pinot Noir
Aromatically this wine is decidedly earthy with herbal notes of cut grass and thyme. With a little more attention you can pull out a slight floral thread that reminds us of honeysuckle and citrus blossom with a hint of black cherry. There is also a bit of sea breeze. This is a taught wine that will open up with time in bottle or with time open on the counter if you can't wait. The palate shows dried apple and pear along with fresh strawberry and almond paste making this a good wine for lighter red meats and dishes that lean towards earthy flavors like mushroom and truffle.
