2015 REX HILL La Colina Pinot Noir
Clearly a Dundee Hills Pinot Noir, the clear burgundy red 2015 REX HILL La Colina Vineyard Pinot Noir has classic volcanic soil aromatics: iris, red and black cherries, baking spices, red currants, raspberries, and fresh soil. Deeper aromas develop of wet stone, toasty oak, black pepper, cigar box, and cola. The attack is balanced with intense cherry, iron, smoke and spice notes that move across the palate to powerful red fruit flavors with structured tannings and beautiful acidity. The intensity and concentration of the 2015 vintage is on full display in this wine. All the elements of the wine harmonize on the long finish that promises many years of ageing ahead. Uncommonly structured for La Colina, the 2015 REX HILL La Colina Vineyard Pinot Noir is a wine that will reward patient cellaring by growing more complex and integrated over the next 15 – 20 years.
