Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it has good acidity, plenty of structure, and a great finish, yet its seamless, pure texture is what stands out. My money is on this blossoming with 2-3 years of bottle age, and it's going to drink nicely for a decade. It's impressive.

Pale to medium ruby-purple colored—wow—the 2017 Pinot Noir Velvet Sisters explodes with perfumed red and black cherries, candied violets and chocolate box plus touches of rose hip tea, sautéed herbs and tilled soil...   Pale to medium ruby-purple colored—wow—the 2017 Pinot Noir Velvet Sisters explodes with perfumed red and black cherries, candied violets and chocolate box plus touches of rose hip tea, sautéed herbs and tilled soil. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses wonderful vibrance and freshness, with a plush, fine-grained texture and a long, savory finish. 317 cases were made.-LPB

Shows laserlike focus to the cherry and currant flavors, backed by fresh, crunchy acidity. Leafy and savory hints show on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 317 cases made. — KM
