2017 was a warmer than average year at Foggy Hill but the wine wasn’t harvested until late March, early April. This is arguably the best Foggy Hill Pinot Noir I’ve seen. It’s fragrant, it’s pretty, it’s well formed and then it’s lengthy through the finish. It sets up its case meticulously and then prosecutes it both firmly and convincingly. Florals, meats, spices, macerated cherries, a clip of sexy oak. Mouthfeel is creamy and then dry in a good way. In all respects it’s both a beautiful and an impressive wine.
