The 2016 Pinot Noir Legan Vineyard is bright and nicely focused, with terrific purity in the raspberry, dried cherry, sage and mint flavors that fill out its mid-weight frame. Yields were low because of the poor set of the year before. As a result, the 2016 is marked by persistent beams of tannin that give the wine much of its overall shape. I very much like the purity here. It will be interesting to see if the 2016 softens with a bit more time in bottle.
