2014 Three Sticks Durell Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., pH 3.50, TA 0.62, 352 cases, $65. 30% whole cluster. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 60% new. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is highly engaging with aromas of cherry, raspberry, earthy mushroom, cinnamon spice and slightly charred oak picking up intensity over time in the glass. The middleweight flavors of black cherry, dark raspberry and blueberry are expansive and nicely accented with spice and oak. Plenty of charm and elegance with a silky mouthfeel, good vibrancy and welcome finishing power. This wine really blossomed later in the day when re-tasted from an opened and recorked bottle. Score: 94. Reviewed October 30, 2016
