2016 Small Vines TBH Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., pH 3.52, TA 0.59, RS 0.2 g/L, 295 cases, $82. Harvest Brix 20.8º-23.2º. Clones include Calera, Swan, Pommard, 943 and 459. Yields .98 lbs per vine.5-day cold soak, 60% whole cluster, native yeast fermentation. Aged 15 months on fine lees in French oak barrels, 24% new. 100% free run juice. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Lovely aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, black plum, beef grilling rub and a nip of nutty oak arrive with aplomb over time in the glass. Mid weight plus in style, with flavors of cherry, blueberry and purple grape and a companion note of savory herbs. Noticeably juicy, with taut tannins that show up on the slightly astringent, but lip-smacking finish. Still young, achieving more brilliance and better integration of tannins when tasted several hours after opening. Score: 94. Reviewed December 11, 2018
