Modus Operandi Cellars, Sonoma Coast (Sonoma County, California) Pinot Noir “Vicarious” 2020

($35):  Focusing on the fruity, rather than savory, side of Pinot Noir, this ready-to-drink wine delivers ripe dark plum-like notes.  This broad-shouldered wine is suavely textured with adequate acidity to balance its ripe black fruit profile.  It finishes with the barest hint of sweetness.  People who like ripe and concentrated Pinot Noir with embrace it.
