The 2017 AVID, Petaluma Gap, Pinot Noir was bottled in May 2019. It entices with a delicate and sophisticated mix of fruits and spices. There are notes of fresh raspberry, red cherry, and black plum with a hint of toast from the oak ageing. In the palate it is lush with well-integrated tannins and balanced acidity. Extended time in glass reveals earthier elements, like dustiness and mushroom scents. This proves the ageing potential that this wine has to offer.
