Bernie’s pick of the week!
Talbott Kali Hart Pinot Noir 2014
This well-priced bottling offers Italian herbs on the nose, from oregano to marjoram, alongside tart red cherries, dried tobacco, cola and a touch of smoke. Graphite minerality frames the sip, which shows red cherries cooked with thyme and bay leaf as well as rustic sagebrush. It’s complex, tense and lingering.
