Lewis Vineyard Reserve Pinot Noir

2016 Carneros

$70

Deep dark purple in color, the 2016 Lewis Vineyard Reserve Pinot Noir offers seductive black cherry, roasted savory herb, and caramel notes with a toasty undercurrent of espresso beans, cloves, and grilled meats. Structured, rich, and round, it delivers silken blackberry, violet, and spice flavors with bracing freshness and a lengthy, savory finish.

"Filled up with the rich goodness that is the expected norm for Frank Family wines, this one continues the winery's string of successes across all varieties. It is, at one and the same time, full in body and near to luscious while also having a solid frame that gives it both balancing sturdiness and the potential to grow significantly over the next five years or more."

Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine

"Lush and exotically spiced in nutmeg and rose, this wine is expansively complex and beguiling in its big-boned, full-bodied richness. It displays bold flavors of dark cherry and cola."
