TASTING NOTE: Ilya Senchuk's small lot (220 case) 2015 pinot noir is actually a new wine set to be released this spring. It's a blend of fruit drawn from both McNally and Lowrey vineyards, two exceptional cru that have been the focus of previous Leaning Post single-vineyard pinot noir. The most notable difference here is how all the tension and vaporous tones melt away to create this fluid, fleecy and ductile wine. The fruit selection seems clearly developed to gain easier access with downsized structure or perhaps it just happened this way. It is here that the house style reads as a lithe Peninsula pinot noir manifesto with clarity and transparency to set up and introduce the estate's next vintage, recently planted young vine pinot noir. Drink 2018-2021. Score - 90 (Michael Godel, winealign.com, Feb. 24, 2018) Price $ 29.95
