Paul Lato, Pinot Noir ''Atticus'' (John Sebastiano Vineyard), 2016

“From a site on the eastern side of the Sta. Rita Hills and aged in 50% new French oak, the 2016 Pinot Noir Atticus John Sebastiano Vineyard offers a very pretty, perfumed style. Red cherries, red plums, rose petals, and blood orange notes give way to a medium-bodied, ethereally textured, seamless 2016 that has some background oak, a layered, ultra-fine personality, and a great finish. It’s going to age beautifully. Again, this is easily the most ethereal and seamless in the lineup and shines more for its nuance and elegance than power or richness. Drink it any time over the coming decade.”

“The 2016 Pinot Noir Atticus John Sebastiano Vineyard bursts from the glass with an exuberant bouquet of red cherry, plum preserve, black figs, licorice, sweet spices, black tea and a generous application of creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is ample and medium to full-bodied, with lovely energy and tension at the core despite its decadently ripe aromas, with its tannins fine-grained and its finish long and sappy.”

“The 2016 Pinot Noir Atticus John Sebastiano Vineyard is broad, powerful and ample, with terrific intensity in all of its dimensions. There is tremendous purity to the red cherry and pomegranate fruit, but the 2016 also needs at least a few years in bottle to fully come together. It is one of the more virile wines in the range.”
