2011 Sinor-LaVallee San Luis Obispo County Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 135 cases, $30. A blend of fruit from Talley-Rincon Vineyard in Arroyo Grande and Squire Canyon Vineyard in Avila Beach. Average yields 2.8 tons per acre. 25% whole cluster. Native and natural fermentation, pressed off with a basket press. Aged 12 months in 50% new Francois Frères French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. The aromas have not arrived in this wine yet, but with swirling, delicate scents of very ripe stone and berry fruit emerge with a pleasant oak backing. The mid palate attack of strawberry, raspberry and plum fruit flavors are moderately intense. The tannins are well managed and the wine finishes with modest but pleasing length. Good.
