Kelley Fox Hyland Vineyard Coury Clone Pinot Noir 2017


Sold Out

“Vivid red. Spice-accented raspberry, cherry and rose pastille aromas, along with hints of woodsmoke, cola and baking spices. Silky and focused on the palate, offering lively red fruit, allspice and floral pastille flavors that deliver power with zero fat. Fine-grained tannins frame a very long, spice-tinged finish that shows outstanding clarity and building florality. 50% whole clusters. Drinking window: 2021-2029. 95 points

Kelley Fox has successfully navigated the 2018 vintage, which often produced large-scale, dark-fruited wines, crafting a set of graceful, exotically perfumed and balanced wines that in no way suggest that they’re the product of a ripe year. Her ‘18s lean toward her 2016s, 2015s and 2014s in style for their relative depth and power, with plenty of whole cluster influence and an unadorned personality, thanks no doubt to the use of neutral oak.”
