Ygnacia Pinot Noir, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley
The 2018 Pinot Noir Ygnacia Hyde Vineyard is stellar. Crushed red/purplish berry fruit, lavender, rose petal and spice all soar out of the glass. Effusive and silky, with tremendous presence, the Ygnacia is a real charmer. Readers will have a very hard time keeping their hands off this jewel of a wine.
Dried raspberry and strawberry with bark and black tea on the nose. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins. Stone and salt-cube undertones. Savory finish. Turns rich and decadent at the end. Drink or hold.
