VIN97 The 2021 Pinot Noir George Menini Estate, here in its first release, is phenomenal. It o!ers a striking mix of Russian River opulence and West Sonoma Coast energy. Not surprisingly, it o!ers tons of energy and nuance. Red/purplish fruit, rose petal, lavender, mint and spice all build as this deep, beautifully resonant Pinot shows off its considerable allure.
JS97 This is so spicy, with crushed cloves, nettles and blue fruit. Sichuan spices, too. Full-bodied with juicy fruit and orange zest. Creamy and polished tannins. Wonderful depth and length. Drink or hold.
