Paul Lato Pinot Noir Solomon Hills Vineyard Santa Maria Valley 2015
2 Feb 2021
I have never had any Pinot Noir from California, thus I was curious enough to pop open this bottle given by my friend. I just had their Chardonnay a week ago, and was sufficiently impressed with the content. Thus I think Paul Lato quality is definitely on very receptive level. The bouquet was definitely some sweet red cherry nose, very seductive, feels like drinking the wines from the nose! Content did not disappoint, it was with a very seductive palate, very friendly style, almost a “girl next door” sweetness, with brightness that put red burgundies to shame. The wine has very decent depth, length and complexity. Frankly, my encountering with Pinot Noir from North America has better success rates than those from the Mecca (obviously I was referring to red burgundies).
