2010 Panthea Estate Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., pH 3.80, TA 0.54, $45. 80% Pommard and 20% Dijon clones. 100% de-stemmed and whole berry fermented using wild and Burgundian yeasts after a multi-day cold soak. Aged for up to 22 months in 100% French oak barrels, 40% new. Bottled unfined and unfiltered and aged 18 months in bottle before release. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Lovely aromas of fresh crushed cherries, spice and wilted rose. On the palate, the mid weight core of black cherry fruit is embellished with smoky oak flavor. An enjoyable wine with modest tannins, but lacks nuance and length. Score: 88. Reviewed September 18, 2015
