2018 Russian River Pinot Noir, De Loach & 2018 Knox Alexander Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir, Au Bon Climat

Two more small, tasty bottles from Vinkällan.

2018 Russian River Pinot Noir, De Loach
A open, fine nose with notes of rhubarbs, ripe raspberries, undergrowth and warm herbs, Very, very good.
The taste is juicy and fine with a fine acidity and notes of raspberry licorice, forest floor and a hint of tobacco. Long and velvety.
90p   (tasted 2021/03)


2018 Knox Alexander Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir, Au Bon Climat
A deep, high nose with notes of dried raspberries, iron, a touch of VA and root vegetables. Complex and very fine.
The taste is tight and dry with notes of sour/sweet raspberries, raspberry vinegar, licorice and compost. Very long and fine. Lovely.
93p   (tasted 2021/03)
