Wine Enthusiast Advance Buying Guide
August/September 2022

A selection of 2019 MacRostie Pinot Noirs have been recommended by Virginie Boone in the August/September issue of Wine Enthusiast Advance Buying Guide.

2019 Thale’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
93 Points

“Citrus and red cherry fruit provide a bright tanginess to this wine that’s crunchy in texture and has a vein throughout of refined acidity. Medium-bodied in style, it shows a balanced approach and plenty of complexity.” — Virginie Boone

2019 Putnam Vineyard Pinot Noir
92 Points

“Spicy, earthy red fruit is centered around firm tannin and savory characteristics of crushed rock and herb in this balanced coastal wine. Fresh acidity helps keep it focused and energetic around integrated oak notes of clove and cola.” — Virginie Boone

2019 Hellenthal Vineyard Pinot Noir
90 Points

“With a light, delicate color, this wine is relatively light on the palate as well, with a cool-climate freshness that lingers. Grippy tannins wrap around layers of dark cherry, pomegranate and citrus, finishing in a touch of black tea.” — Virginie Boone

2019 Olivet Lane Pinot Noir
90 Points

“With a gravelly texture, this is a demure, refined wine, with a note of crisp cucumber and citrus peel. A dense midpalate reveals rich undertones of cherry and strawberry, with nuanced oak throughout.” — Virginie Boone
