2014 Upper Eden Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $12.99. Produced and bottled by Upper Eden Wines, Soledad, CA. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is not unpleasant but offers little cheer, with only restrained aromas of cherry and rose petal. A simple wine with black cherry and black raspberry flavors in an easily quaffable style with silky tannins and welcome balance. Score: 86. Reviewed December 13, 2016
