2015 Frank Family Vineyards Carneros Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.68, TA 0.56, $. Produced and bottled by Frank Family Vineyards, Calistoga, CA.. Aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 33% new and 67% once and twice-filled. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Soaring aromas of black strawberry, black cherry, blackberry and toasty oak. Luscious in the mouth, with the mid weight plus essence of black cherry and blackberry fruits. Enters better than it finishes but still satisfies. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the oak overlay characters of dark chocolate, coffee and spice were more evident. Score: 89. Reviewed August 6, 2017
