Golden West Pinot Noir 2018

Product description
Golden West is rooted in completing the story of Washington State. Winemaker, Charles Smith has successfully shown that Washington, like France, can produce great Rhone varietals, Bordeaux varietals and aromatic whites. 

There is plenty of high-end Pinot Noir in the market and not enough at a really good price that nearly everyone can afford. Golden West fulfills the promise of what they set out to do: to bring really great wine to a lot more people. The label is meant to show you where the wine is grown, to show both the geography of Golden West and that it’s handmade and agricultural. When people think of Pinot Noir, they think of artisanal and small. The layers of colour signal both the complexity and simplicity of what’s in the bottle.

93 Points - James Suckling
This is a toned and phenolic Pinot with dried strawberry, chocolate and tile character. Earthy. Full-bodied, yet bright and vivid. Punchy and refined at the same time. Plenty going on at the finish. A new wine. Drink now or hold.
