2014 Wind Racer Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $50. Sourced from Maggy Hawk Estate Vineyard. Clones 777, 115 and 2A. 100% de-stemmed with 70% remaining whole berries, 5-day cold soak, inoculated and native malolactic fermentation. Fermented in open tanks with daily punch downs. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 39% new. · Moderately dark ruby red color in the glass. Aromas of strawberry, cherry, baking spices and sandalwood maintain over time in the glass. Mid weight plus in style, with deep flavors of cherry, blueberry and tobacco. Impressive attack, follow through and finish with tame tannins and the right touch of oak. Even better the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 91.
