2014 Upper Eden Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $12.99. A Trader Joe’s exclusive from Upper Eden Wines in Soledad. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The nose did not appeal, with aromas of dried cherry, pitch and underbrush. Better on the palate, with middleweight flavor of black cherry, RC Cola and an accent of toasty oak. Structured, with good integration of the alcohol, and a modest finish. Score: 86. Reviewed November 22, 2015
