2010 Three Sticks Silver Eagle Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

15.50% alc., pH 3.67, TA 0.62, 50 cases, $60. Just north of Occidental in the Green Valley of Russian River Valley AVA. Calera selection. 70% whole cluster. Aged 14 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Super ripe fruit profile on the shy nose. Full-bodied essence of dark red cherries and berries with a prominent nutty note in the background. Balanced, modest tannins. Linear and rather closed today which could be related to the significant whole cluster. Need to spend more time with this wine. Good. Reviewed March 23, 2013
