The wine offers a richness and complexity that suggests a Pinot Noir that is more expensive. Its Central Coast earthiness is center stage in an aroma that is enveloped by cherries, herbs and a touch of rhubarb. On the palate, it has a nice fruit weight with fine tannins that are nicely placed but by no means over bearing. Yes, this Rita’s Earth Pinot should age well. While it’s a pleasure to drink now, it is still just a baby, and should continue to spread its wings over the next few years. Also, being a little more on the delicate side, it’s the perfect red wine for chilling down in summer.
