The Soter North Valley Pinot Noir exhibits charming aromas of bright red fruits, with baking spices and underbrush. The nose is bright and high toned - very expressive. Medium bodied on the palate with a darker fruit profile, the wine is sleek and silky in texture. Additional notes of black mission figs and plums emerge, with some anise, black pepper and a little forest floor note. In the finish, the wine reveals clove and hints of espresso. Soft, youthful tannins are nicely balanced with acidity, and the wine is quite seamless.
