2013 Frank Family Vineyards Carneros Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.68, TA 0.61, 5,000 cases, $35. Aged 20 months in 100% French oak barrels, 33% new, 67% once and twice-filled. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Captivating aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and spice initially, fading some over time in the glass. An elegant offering featuring very ripe cherry and berry fruit flavors with underlying hints of spice, savory mushrooms and toasty oak. Eminently like able and approachable. Score: 89.
