From the bottle:
Sustainably farmed in Sonoma County.
Our Pinot Noir has extraordinary elegance and a silky red berry bouquet with layers of raspberry, dark chocolate and lilac flavors.
The 2018 Cline Sonoma County Pinot Noir begins with a quite good, unmistakably Pinot Noir aroma of strawberry, cherry, cola, licorice and a little earthiness. Tasting the medium to full-bodied wine reveals juicy black cherry, strawberry and raspberry fruit with nice spice accents plus dark chocolate and toasty oak. With smooth, soft tannins and nice depth of flavor this is a bit more substantial than your average Pinot. It ends dry with good length and lingering touches of spice and vanilla. Quite nice!
