2019 J. Wilkes Pinot Blanc Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 91+ Points
J. Wilkes is one of California’s best Pinot Blanc producers and the 2019 is another hit. The aromas are vibrant, focused and forthcoming, with scents of fresh apple, dry peach, Asian pear, chamomile, preserved lemon and background hints of lavender, white pepper and flint. On the palate, it proves silky in texture, while flavors of green apple, Korean melon and dried golden mulberry take center stage. The finish is dry, flavorful and lingers with appealing refreshment. It is ready to enjoy. 2240 cases produced.
