2016 Burt Street Cellars Stony Point Vineyard Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 150 cases, $45. Eastfacing, hilltop vineyard situated above the fog line. Soils are Goldridge loam and adobe clay. · Dark garnet color in the glass. Aromas and flavors veer to the ripe side in this middleweight wine. The nose offers scents of black cherry, blackberry, prune and terra-cotta. Luscious flavors of black cherry, blueberry, blackberry and spice fill the mouth. Flashy and bombastic, with integrated tannins, juicy acidity and some finishing length. A bit of heat shows up on the conclusion. Score: 88. Reviewed July 21, 2018
