This cool-climate Pinot Noir from Ernest Vineyards is practically bursting with notes of ripe red fruits; think bing cherries and summer strawberries followed by a hint of red roses.  On the palate, it delivers even more complexity with the fruit profile being wrapped in layers of silky tannins and marked acidity.

95/100 - The 2021 Pinot Noir Estate is a blend from the Cleary and Michael Vallentine ranches, both in Freestone. Bright and effusive, with striking depth, the 2021 is deep and beautifully layered right out of the gate. A rush of dark red/purplish fruit, rose petal, lavender, mint and blood orange build into the rich, heady finish. The 33% stems are not especially evident. This is the best wine I have tasted from Ernest so far. It would be great to see more wines here in this direction. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

94/100 - Black fruit here, with black cherry and dark strawberry. Crushed stone and metal shavings, too. It’s full and solid with firm, racy tannins and a long finish. Linear and svelte. A little tight. Drinkable now, but better after 2025. - James Suckling 

On the nose, pronounced notes of pomegranate, cherry cola, tart cranberries, red rose petals, and earthy spice.
On the palate, rich, concentrated and layered with firm, silky tannins and assertive acidity coated with an exuberant fruitiness.

Try pairing alongside salmon with squash, sprouts, and a honey mustard emulsion. Alternatively, enjoy with classic Pinot pairings like mushroom risotto, rabbit, or beef bourguignon.
