The Utopia 2017 Estate Pinot Noir showcases maximum clonal diversity, resulting in a complex and elegant wine. With its beautiful aromas and flavors of ripe cherry, berry fruits, rose petal, and spice, this Pinot Noir is polished and textured, boasting vibrant acidity and a juicy mid-palate. I found this vintage to be exceptionally smooth and enjoyable.

On the Palate: Layers of ripe red berries, such as cherries and raspberries, are complemented by subtle earthy undertones. A medium body and soft, well-integrated tannins contribute to a refined and lingering finish.
