#55 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019
Plush, featuring creamy notes that accent the concentrated cherry tart, dark plum and currant flavors, taking on a pastrylike richness. Sandalwood and spice details linger on the finish, with chocolate hints. Drink now through 2023.
One of the backward wines in the lineup was the 2017 Pinot Noir Keefer Ranch, which has a smoky, underbrush, and black fruit-driven style as well as good mid-palate depth, integrated acidity, and solid overall balance. Nevertheless, it’s tight and closed on the palate and will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age.
Keefer Ranch Vineyard was planted in 1988 by Marcy Keefer and her husband Robert, a retired doctor who took night classes on grape farming before diving into the deep end and establishing the site. Eleven years later, a handshake deal with a certain Pittsburgher would create Failla's first vineyard-designate Pinot Noir.
