2010 Bluxome Street Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 250 cases, $45. · Medium reddish-purple hue in the glass. Alluring aromas of black cherry, toasty new oak, brier and tobacco. Delicious essence of black cherry pie glaze that coats the mouth and holds on indefinitely for a peacock finish of uncommon length. Still sporting sinewy tannins that need time to soften and integrate. A big gulp of Pinot. Hold. Score: 91. Reviewed September 5, 2013
