J. Lohr Falcon's Perch Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
The 2021 J. Lohr Estates Falcon's Perch showcases the spicy strawberry character that is a hallmark of Monterey County Pinot Noir. Bright strawberry, raspberry, and watermelon fruit notes meld with clove and sagebrush on the nose. Delicate tannins on the mid-palate are complemented by camphor, dried cherry, and black tea on the finish.
Fresh raspberry aromas are cut by incense and cigar box on the nose of this bottling. There's a viscous and ripe character to the palate, where ripe cherry flavors are enhanced by an umami-laced mushroom note and a tangy citrus acidity.
