Cinder Cone Woodenhead Pinot Noir 2016
A dark ruby color. Definitely scents of black fruit, toasty oak, and candy cane undertones, (sweet peppermint), just a nuance. Complexity of perfume. A little tight aromatically but cellaring and or just warming in glass or decanting will coax more. Very structured with medium tannin and good acidity. Also built to last. The palate is black fruit, a little jammy with dark plum, black cherry and mulberry, some blood orange rind. Mouthfilling, more masculine than feminine. Lots of earthiness with some spice. A substantial and warm wine that expands as exposed to air. Both elegant and complex. Meaty, hearty, and reminiscent of a French Burgundy. A wine for a beef stew or a hearty roast. 46-year-old vines of Clone #5 Pommard and Martini Clone #58.
