Aromas of Bing cherry, ripe apple and dark chocolate are apparent with an intriguing scent of underbrush buried deeper in the wine. Flavors constantly evolve starting with raspberries and moving to dark cocoa.

Just slightly deeper ruby-hued, the 2017 Pinot Noir Knox Alexander comes from the Bien Nacido and Le Bon Climat vineyards. Another complex, meaty, savory Pinot Noir in the lineup, it offers loads of spiced cherry and redcurrant fruits as well as brambly herbs, underbrush, cured meats, and leather-like aromas and flavors. As with all the 2017s from this estate, it stays fresh and focused on the palate, with a tight, racy style.

The 2017 Pinot Noir Knox Alexander is a bold, powerful, savory wine. Dried cherry, game, licorice, tobacco and spice are front and center. This is an especially wild, spicy Pinot. The tannins are a bit grainy today. It will be interesting to see how things develop here. Gamy, earthy undertones linger. The Knox Alexander is mostly Bien Nacido with some Le Bon Climat.
