2017 Baileyana S-BAR Pinot Noir

2017 Baileyana S-BAR Pinot Noir

Vine- and barrel-select, very limited production, this is arguably the best Pinot we make! Aged for 9 months in 30% new French oak, this bottling represents around 1% of our total Pinot Noir production - you won't find this wine in stores.

93 Points, 2017 Baileyana Pinot Noir S-Bar: "Saturated garnet. Spice-accented red fruit preserve, vanilla and exotic spice scents show excellent clarity and pick up a suave floral note as the wine opens up. Juicy, broad and fleshy on the palate, offering alluringly sweet raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that deepen and become spicier and livelier on the back half. Finishes smooth and gently smoky, showing lingering cherry and floral character on an impressively long, subtly tannic finish." —Josh Raynolds, January 2021

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our SBAR Pinot Noir is elegant and balanced with flavors that are reminiscent of a French Pinot. Leading with aromas of dark berry and raspberry on the nose, along with some nutmeg, clove and subtle cinnamon. The round, creamy mouthfeel brings out the luscious dark fruit flavors with highlights of subtle sweet oak. While the smooth, velvety tannins and balanced acid structure lead to a lingering finish.
