2018 Ceritas Costalina Pinot Noir
Rare and powerful wines - we only get a mixed dozen each year...
The 2018 Pinot Noir Costalina is gracious and ethereal, with lovely savory nuances that lift from the glass effortlessly. Crushed red berries, rose petal, mint, sage and bright mineral inflections give the Costalina its sculpted, vibrant feel. The 2018 is deceptive in its mid-weight feel, but it has terrific vibrancy as well as persistence. The Costalina is a blend taken from all the Sonoma Coast sites in the range, with about 20% whole clusters. A bit of air does magic for the 2018, which is already quite approachable. Antonio Galloni
