2011 Cakebread Cellars Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., pH 3.67, TA 0.58, $49.50. Released October 1, 2012. Winemaker Julianne Laks. Each clone fermented separately. Post-fermentation maceration for several weeks. Aged 11 months in 37% new French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. This wine is true to the Cakebread Pinot Noir style exhibiting prominent oak on the nose and palate. Middleweight flavors of black raspberries and black cherries clothed in modest tannins and toasty oak, finishing with some length. The fruit is quite alluring, but I just can!t get beyond the oak. Worth revisiting in a year. Decent. Reviewed June 23, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »
