Solena is crafting beautiful Pinot Noirs in their 2021 vintage, and the Grand Cuvée is an excellent example. Showcasing a medium garnet-purple core with a silvery rim in the glass, the nose pops with aromas of black cherry, blue plum, Asian spices, cedary herbs, spruce forest, and just a hint of hoisin sauce. Perfect levels of acidity pair well with the sweet rounded tannins and medium-bodied mouthfeel. It finishes with a floral, blood orange, and blue-fruit essence on the mid-palate. An excellent buy for only $32.
