2019 Girasole Vineyards Pinot Noir Mendocino $16 - 91 Points

Quite a pretty translucent shade of garnet, the aromas coming off this fall squarely into the mellow baritone category. In the mouth, however, it turns bright and lively with expressive floral notes, a fresh, fragrant herbal character, and spicy at the cardamom end of the frequency spectrum. Whatever it may lack in layering it more than makes up for in its luminescence. Like a bunch of fresh gardenias - unique, very pleasant, super intriguing, and, therefore, a steal at this price.
