A fantastic value
Pali is a hot new producer in the world of California Pinot Noir and have been getting fantastic scores. The Riviera is one of the best Pinot values we've discovered this year.
The 2017 Pali “Riviera” Pinot Noir features a bright bouquet of plum, fresh raspberries, wild blackberries, coriander, lavender, iron and cinnamon. The palate is rich and full with black fruits intertwined with fresh raspberry, black pepper and wet stone that resonate in a fanning finish of sweet red currant and dark chocolate.
93 Points "Best Buy," The Pinot Report: "Deep ruby color; complex, deep berry aromas with some forest floor notes; rich, complex berry and cherry flavors with earth and oak notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, rich Pinot with nice complexity. Perfect for what's on the grill."
