2018 Ceritas Rivina Pinot Noir
Rare and powerful wines - we only get a mixed dozen each year...
The 2018 Pinot Noir Rivina, a new offering in this range, is rich and wonderfully fleshy. A burst of sweet red/purplish berry fruit makes a strong first impression in a bold yet mid-weight Sonoma Coast Pinot that offers tons of immediacy and pure pleasure. Best of all, the Rivina can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Ceritas sources grapes from the Red Car Estate in Fort Ross-Seaview for this wine. It will be interesting to see where the Rivina goes in coming years. There is a feeling of density that is super intriguing. Antonio Galloni
