Raen Pinot Noir Cuvee Royal St. Robert Sonoma Coast 2019
VM92: The 2019 Pinot Noir Royal St. Robert is a very pretty wine. Crushed flowers, mint, rose petal, blood orange and cinnamon give the 2019 gorgeous aromatic presence. Lithe and elegant in feel, the Royal St. Robert is super classy from start to finish. This is an especially ethereal, savory style with a lot of whole cluster influence. The Royal St. Robert is a blend of the three sites in the Raen range.
RAEN was founded in 2013 by Tim Mondavi’s two sons, Carlo and Dante Mondavi, who worked with him in building Continuum. Royal St. Robert Cuvee comes from a site overlooking Tomales Bay and the Sonoma Coast line, where Pacific fog engulfs the vineyards in the mornings. This Pinot Noir carries a clear mark of its cold coastal origin. So beautiful, ripe, and racy.
