Lincoln Peak Vineyard 2016 Marquette Nouveau
Unoaked and released early. Sunny, high-toned red cherry and cherry skin aromas are accented by hints of blueberry and woodsy spice on a nose that bursts with freshness.
Punchy and just as fresh on a juicy, medium-light bodied palate. Flavors of just-crushed cherries and blueberries and more of that subtle spiciness, which turns a bit exotic on the end of a surprisingly long finish. This wine makes the case for extremely judicious use of oak with the variety -- and maybe not oaking it at all.
This vintage is sold out, but keep an eye out for the 2017.
