2013 Mi Sueño Los Carneros Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 915 cases, $42. Sourced from Tierra Blanca Vineyard Aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 25% new. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Leading off are aromas of black fruit compote, fertile earth, dark chocolate, smoke and oak char. Gracious and juicy in the mouth with a mid weight core of purple and black berry fruit with an earthy, mushroom undertone. There is a firm backbone of tannin and a riff of oak in the background. A quintessential Carneros Pinot Noir that tastes like it came from there. Score: 92. Reviewed September 24, 2017
