2018 Fossil Point Pinot Noir, Edna Valley AVA

This vintage is classically mid-weight, with pretty ripe red plum, orange peel, and pomegranate flavors.  Careful use of French oak frames the wine without obscuring herbal scents of marjoram and black tea.  Balanced in acidity and texture, this wine is a superb table partner to crispy pork belly, roasted duck, or miso-glazed Black Cod.
