2020 "Stand by Me" Pinot Noir 1.5L
Drum Canyon Vineyard, JD 96 / AG 95 Points
"More exotic notes of candied strawberries, red plums, violets, new leather, and exotic flowers all define the bouquet of the 2020 Pinot Noir Stand By Me, another rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, floral, nicely structured Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. I like its tannins, and like many of Lato's 2020s, it has good structure and a more focused, chiseled style that should reward a year or two of bottle age."
