J.K. Carriere Vespidae Pinot Noir 2016


Only 5 left!

Wine Spectator 92 Points- Distinctive, well-built and appealingly savory, with cherry, smoky underbrush and clove accents that take on structure toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025.

The color is high tone garnet. The nose is super effusive cherry, hibiscus, grilled meat, tan spice and cracked pepper. The flavors are massive and present as a cherry and peach pie with a one-minute too brown crust. The structure is quietly lurking, but unobtrusive. Ultimately it’s a powerful mouthful that begs the question drinkable, eatable or slurpable? Get a fork or, perhaps, a soup spoon.
