2010 Alysian Hallberg Vineyard Crossroads Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc.,156 cases, $55. · Moderately dark reddish purple hue in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, shaved oak and fennel lead to lean, dilute flavors of black cherry and plum with a citrus-infused cranberry finish. Hi-voltage acidity underlies the wine’s tartness, and the barely ripe fruit is austere. Score: 85. Reviewed January 20, 2014
