“Theodora Lee’s latest Pinot, the 2017 Yorkville Highlands, is her lightest and freshest red, but don’t let that fool you, it is a complex and charming Pinot with beautiful ripe personality. This is another quality effort from this small Mendocino County winery best known for their estate vineyard Petite Sirah. This vintage of Theopolis Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir was fermented using native yeast and then raised in toasty French oak for just about a year, with about 25% new barrels employed. It follows my prior experience with this selection from recent years with a subtle floral perfume, ripe fruits, juicy on the medium-bodied palate, though very smooth and satiny in the mouth. This new release is 14.2% natural alcohol and generous without being hot or flabby with just enough bright acidity to make the flavors pop with its crimson core and bright ruby edges this Pinot delivers layers of black cherry, raspberry, plum and a touch of cranberry fruit with soft textures and adding rose oil, sweet herbs, smoky vanilla as well as a nice mineral tone. Look for this wine to fill out over the next 2 or 3 years and adding some complexity to the mix, as with air this young wine gained detail and character over the course of a few hours and was really good with mixed cuisine including hard to pair veggies, leaving everyone and me impressed, it is a very solid effort and a wine to look forward to in the new year.” —Kerry Winslow

“This full-bodied but light-in-concentration wine has very lean fruit flavors and a dominant spicy, oaky, vanilla tone in both the aromas and the flavors. ”
