2016 Fogline Vineyards Hillside Block Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., pH 3.60, TA 0.60, $65. Clones are 115, Swan, Mt. Eden and Pommard from the winery’s estate vineyard located above Gap’s Crown vineyard in the Petaluma Gap AVA. · Dark garnet color in the glass. Super ripe fruits in the black realm on the nose. Full-bodied and velvety in the mouth, with a charge of sweet boysenberry and blackberry fruits accented with spice and tobacco notes. Impressive concentration with immersed tannins and some finishing length, but this wine is hardly recognizable as Pinot Noir. Score: 88. Reviewed April 16, 2019
