Balletto Sexton Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014 RRV 2014
"The wine opens subtlety with dry earth, spice and black tea, followed by a light kiss of dark fruit in the background. Juicy acidity lights up the palate...and then the wine begins to showoff. It’s a light-weight that manages to come across as powerful. It gains momentum through it’s structure and balance, with all its elements merging simultaneously into one complete sensation. This wine will reward those with the patience to savor and understand everything that’s going on.
Sexton Hill Vineyard, with its steep hillsides, Goldridge soil and a non-traditional (think cold) northern exposure, lies about 10 miles from the cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean. Protected from direct afternoon sun, the grapes planted here produce concentrated and structured wines." Winery
