Anthony Road Pinot Noir 2016: $27 Good+

The Anthony Road Pinot Noir (Finger Lakes, NY) 2016 $27 [Good+] is an easy quaffing wine, modestly intense, with authentic Pinot Noir flavors.  Sip this wine with snacks or serve with light dinner entrees. 

Light orange/ruby in color, the modestly intense aromas are dominated by savory scents — toast, mushroom, spice, vanilla, smoke — with some subtle ripe strawberry fruit in the background.  Round, mouth filling, with a moderate dose of gritty tannin, balance is good.  Flavors feature a panopoly of savory notes (mushroom, spice, vanilla, smoke) as well as some ripe strawberry fruit.  The finish is slightly metallic, gritty, with good length.  January 2018
