The Hilt, Estate Pinot Noir 2019 Sta Rita Hills

15.5

South-western corner of the Sta Rita Hills. Ageing: 8% new French oak, 92% neutral French oak for 11 months.
Savoury, saline notes on the palate. Smooth, ripe tannins, enough acidity. Quite open and appealing now, probably already at optimum. Enjoyable and rounded. Long aftertaste. (AWH)
