Review: 2017 J Vineyards Pinot Noir Annapolis Ridge Vineyard

This single vineyard pinot from J stands at the top of its impressive lineup, but the wine is surprisingly astringent at first blush, taking quite a bit of time to open up and reveal itself. Until then, it’s all graphite, charred wood, and spice box. Eventually notes of fresh cherries, blueberries, and some pomegranate evolve, creating a more classic pinot noir profile with elements of chocolate and cedar box percolating on the finish. It’s a bit of a tannic trip to get there, though, but the journey turns out to largely be worthwhile. Give this one a few more years in the cellar.
