Tasting Notes: Not being familiar with the Phelps pinot, I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was California fruit and acid with a touch of a burgundy accent. The ripe fruit was prevalent, but elegantly subdued. The tannins have had time to relax in the bottle on this 2017, so it was ready to drink. The wine was balanced with fruit, tannin and acid, with a long lingering finish.
