2016 RAEN ‘Home Field Vineyard’ Pinot Noir
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94: Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Home Field Vineyard gives up notes of black tea, scorched earth, raspberries and wild blueberries with fragrant wafts of lilacs and rose hips plus a suggestion of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, intensely fruited and tightly wound, the palate is taut, muscular and lively with bags of energy down to the long, perfumed finish.
James Suckling 97: This has impressive, fragrant complexity with an abundance of sweetly spiced red cherries and wild berries. Super expressive nose. The palate is seamlessly delivered with pristine red cherries and a smoothly layered texture that has been expertly crafted. Stunning Sonoma Coast pinot. Drink or hold.
