Medium ruby, the 2016 Pinot Noir Estate offers lush fruits—warm cranberries, red currants and blackberries—with nuances of orange peel, earth and potpourri. Medium-bodied, it offers great intensity and amaro-laced fruits...   Medium ruby, the 2016 Pinot Noir Estate offers lush fruits—warm cranberries, red currants and blackberries—with nuances of orange peel, earth and potpourri. Medium-bodied, it offers great intensity and amaro-laced fruits, with a finely granulated frame and seamless freshness, finishing long and bright. - EB

Wine Spectator, September 2018
Deep and brooding, yet retains a sense of focus and polish, offering dark cherry, black tea and spice box flavors that take on momentum toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2024. 981 cases made. — TF

The 2016 Pinot Noir “Estate” bottling from Lingua Franca is a lovely example of this vintage, coming in at a cool thirteen percent octane and offering up a complex and nicely new oaky nose of black cherries, woodsmoke...   The 2016 Pinot Noir “Estate” bottling from Lingua Franca is a lovely example of this vintage, coming in at a cool thirteen percent octane and offering up a complex and nicely new oaky nose of black cherries, woodsmoke, cola, lovely soil tones, a bit of fresh herbs and a refined framing of spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and well-balanced, with a good core, ripe, moderate tannins and a long, tangy and nascently complex finish. This is still a young wine and deserves three to five years in the cellar prior to drinking it in earnest. It has excellent potential.
