I love the nose on the 2021 Marie-Paule Pinot Noir from Sun Break - it explodes from the glass with aromas of blueberry preserves, crushed cranberries, wet stone, Earl Grey tea, hints of charcuterie, and fresh poultry herbs. Balanced and fresh acidity pairs perfectly with the rounded sweet tannins and lengthy fruit-forward finish. It finishes just a touch more elegant and balanced than its siblings, which makes it my favorite of the lineup. 378 cases were produced.
