The 2017 Ballard Lane Central Coast Pinot Noir has a dark crimson color and opens with aromas of strawberries, clove and baking spices. The palate is fleshy with peppered strawberries, maraschino cherries and toasted oak. This wine has earthy tones and hints of vanilla. This Pinot Noir pairs well with carnitas tacos and homemade burgers.
Expressive notes of black cherry and black pepper arise alongside a hint of bramble and bergamot. On the palate, generous favors of wild berries complement a silky body and tinges of spice that touch the middle of the tongue. Meaty au jus further seasons these earthy red berries, imparting an umami character. Aged for four months in French oak, this wine represents the kind of beauty the Central Coast can offer—we did a double take at the price.
