Review: 2017 Lula Cellars Pinot Noir Peterson Vineyard

Anderson Valley-based Lula Cellars is out with its latest pinot noir, sourced from Mendocino’s Peterson Vineyard. For those clone-obsessed, it’s made from a blend of Pommard and Dijon clones 667, 777, and 115, aged in French oak.

It’s another dazzler from Lula, showcasing bright, acidic, and fresh cherry fruit, with overtones of nutmeg and licorice candy. A bitter, amaro-esque edge informs the finish, but this works to the wine’s favor, adding complexity. While the body is a bit on the thin side, there’s so much to love on the nose and palate that the flaw is easy to overlook.
