Liten Buffel 2016 Perfetto Vineyard Pinot Noir
Shows beautiful balance between sweet fruit — mostly strawberries — and more savory notes like roasted sugar beets and black tea. The light-bodied palate shows more juicy strawberry with layers of tea, wet soil, beetroot and dried herbs.
Don’t let the light color and body fool you though — there is some nice grip here. It finishes with a distinct black cherry skin note that balances its earthy savoriness nicely.
