2013 george Vintage XI Buena Terra Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 148 cases, $60. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Enticing aromas of Bing cherry, rose petal, and baking spices including nutmeg. Soft and smooth on the palate, with a giving essence of cherry flavor. Nicely balanced with supple tannins, seamless oak integration, and a cherry-laden finish. Definitely more appealing the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 91. Reviewed December 10, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »
