Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Reserve 2013 balances power and grace perfectly with a nose of bay leaf, chicory, currants, black licorice and roasted hazelnut leading to a sweet fruit palate of amaretto and minerality. The persistent finish is defined by long tannins.

The bottling of Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Noir Reserve 2013 spent 20 months in French oak (30% new), and incorporates fruit from Ponzi’s Aurora, Abetina and Madrona vineyards. Superripe aromas and flavors conjure up a rich and riveting mix of black cherry with amaro-like botanical nuances. This profound wine is already irresistible, but stash a few bottles in your cellar, to drink now through 2030.
