2012 Heart & Hands Estate Clone 777 Finger Lakes Pinot Noir

12.3% alc., pH 3.45, TA 0.61, 23 cases, $44. Sustainably farmed estate vineyard planted in Onondaga limestone. Yield 1.4 tons per acre. 100% whole cluster. Aged 18 months in twice-filled French oak barrels. Unfiltered. · Light garnet color in the glass. Enticing aromas of red cherry, rose petal, spice and sous-bois. Delicious light to mid weight cherry core. Very charming and soft in the mouth, with balanced tannins and a generous, lengthy finish. Tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the nose was a whole cluster celebration with uplifting aromas of spice, floral bouquet and tobacco leaf. Score: 91.
