The 2013 Pinot Noir Renaissance from Soliste is a total knockout in this vintage. The fruit comes from the Sonatera Vineyard and is aged 16 months in 25% new oak barrels. This takes some time to open up, but once it does, it releases pretty aromas of cherries, pomegranate, strawberry and raspberries, followed by dried leaf, earth and violets which all come together and burst from the glass. On the palate this wine is ultra-smooth, with remarkable focus and wonderful flavors of red fruit and dried herbs, underlined by a lovely touch of acidity which balances it out. Beautifully polished and caressing this is brilliant Pinot Noir should continue evolve beautifully over the nexr decade and beyond.
