The 2018 Pinot Noir Earl Stephens Vineyard offers a touch more complexity in its ripe red and black fruits, sagebrush, tobacco, and spring flower-like aromas and flavors. These all flow to a straight-up gorgeous, opulent Pinot Noir with a silky mouthfeel, polished tannins, and a great, great finish. This is pure Russian River goodness, and while I don't think it's going to make old bones, it will evolve nicely for a solid 4-6 years.
