2011 LUTUM Durell Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.39% alc., 125 cases, $60. Clone 667 planted in Goulding cobbly clay loam. Brix at harvest 22.5º. 100% de-stemmed. · Light garnet in color in the glass. Aromatic from the start, with scents of cherry, raspberry, sandalwood and a pleasant note of spice. Light in weight but flavorful, featuring a cherry theme that makes an impression on the mid palate, carrying over to a refreshing finish fueled by bright acidity. The tannins are reserved and the sense is one of liveliness. There are complimentary notes of strawberry, earth, grass, grilled mushroom and oak in the background. Score: 88.
