2014 Three Sticks Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 614 cases, $60. 20% whole cluster. Aged 10 months in 100% French oak barrels, 60% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. A sleek and silky wine that offers aromas of Bing cherries, rose petal and sandalwood and mid weight flavors of black cherry, blueberry, plum sauce, spice and cola. The finish is notable for some sweet cherry intensity and modest length. Not a “typical” Russian River Valley offering as to lushness of fruit, but enjoyable. Score: 90. Reviewed May 11, 2016
