2013 Fogline Fogline Neighbors Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.55, TA 0.65, 72 cases, $65. Released October 2015. A blend of three vineyards on the western face of Sonoma Mountain: Sun Chase (1200 feet elevation), Janian (900 feet elevation) and Fogline (850 feet elevation). Clones 667, 777, 115, 114, Pommard, Mt. Eden and Swan. 30% whole cluster fermentation. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The nose evolves slowly over time in the glass, eventually giving hi-tone aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and seasoned oak. Dark fruited on the palate with inviting intensity that carries over on the fruit-dominated finish. The slightly sinewy tannins are folded in, and the barrel management is ideal. Still inviting the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Can be enjoyed now, but has the balance to last. Score: 91. Reviewed March 12, 2016
