2014 Fogline Vineyards Bacchus Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.0% alc, pH 3.57, TA 0.64, $75, white wax capsule, embossed bottle. Released. 50% whole cluster clone 114 from Janian Vineyard and 50% stemmed Hillside Block (Estate) Swan, Mt. Eden, Pommard and 115 clones. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Very ripe dark fruit aromas arrive over time in the glass. The good news is that the satiny texture is very seductive. The regrettable news is that the fruit has a roasted character and there is some alcoholic warmth detectable. When tasted the following day, the wine still showed extremely ripened, cooked fruit flavors. It doesn’t seem this wine has anywhere to go. Score: 88. Reviewed August 5, 2017
