SOKOL BLOSSER Big Tree Block Pinot Noir 2016

93 Points

Brilliant red. Pungent, floral- and spice-accented aromas of wild dark berries, vanilla and savory herbs, with a smoky mineral quality adding energetic lift. Sappy, focused and lively on the palate, offering densely packed black raspberry, cherry-cola and licorice flavors and a touch of baking spices. The floral and smoke notes come back emphatically on the finish, which hangs on with strong tenacity and gentle sweetness. (one third new French oak).
