2014 Guillén Saikkonen Single Vineyard Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $45. Pommard clone planted in 2003. 100% whole cluster, native fermentation. Aged on the lees for 11 months in neutral French oak barrels. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Shy but pleasant aromas of wet woodland, fertile earth, mulch and dark cherry. Light to mid weight essence of ripe, dark red fruits that enter with more power than they exit. Muscular tannins dominate making for a dry finish. Not enough joy for my taste. Score: 87. Reviewed January 6, 2018
