I wrote about the 2016 Failla recently so it was interesting to sample the younger version. Strawberry coulis nose from this darker red Pinot Noir On the palate I get raspberry, strawberry and crunchy tannins. The mid palate has a pepper component alongside bing cherry. The finish is medium in length with that strawberry core flavor returning. The acidity is decent and the mouthfeel is good. A touch young- it could benefit from some cellaring. Drink till 2029. 89 points $39 make this a solid 3 star wine. Consistent with the previous vintage. Salut….
