2021 CALIFORNIA PINOT NOIR

A garnet core with a ruby gemstone rim, the Equinox Edition XVIII opens with aromatic notes of bright cranberry, strawberry, plot and an intriguing touch of endive, crème fraiche and fennel. Fresh, alive, and enveloping just scratch the surface of the palate; a developing mid-palate of black cherry, wild raspberry, orange peel and pomegranate — all with a prominent vein of acidity — dominate. Bright through the finish, the wine closes with a slight tart cherry upon a piquant, endless crescendo.
