91-POINTS, GOLD MEDAL!
2021 CRITICS CHALLENGE WINE COMPETITION
OG N.24 Pinot Noir is sourced from one of the most northeastern vineyards in the rolling hills of Napa Carneros that eventually become the Mayacamas range and Mt. Veeder. This is great dirt and about as good as it gets for the region.
Cherry red with a pretty violet purple edge. Leaps from the glass with black cherry, wild strawberry and rhubarb framed against spicy, peppery earth. Rich, ripe and silky across the palate but well supported with ample structure and delicate tannins. Fresh and spicy on the finish with hints of mushroom and herb, this is one delicious pinot you won't want to miss.
I think this Pinot is actually a good deal at the $35/bottle winery tariff. At $20/bottle, its a ridiculously good deal.
