Stephen Goff Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard 2016 - Vinous 94 Points
Regular price $50.00
Winemaker Stephen Goff worked with Shea fruit at his old job, at Beaux Freres. Now, he makes wine from Shea fruit for his own label. All that practice with Shea's grapes has given him mad skills in pulling out all the flavor possible. This is quite appealing now -- as is the wont of the '16s in general -- so pull the cork if the spirit moves you.
From Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. Powerful, sharply focused aromas of ripe red berries, potpourri and exotic spices are lifted by a smoky mineral nuance. Broad, seamless and concentrated on the palate, offering intense raspberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that show impressive energy and a sweetening floral pastille quality on the back half. In a generous yet graceful style, betraying no rough edges and finishing with strong mineral drive and velvety tannins that come in late."
