2016 The Winery SF North Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 300 cases, $29.99. Winemaker Bryan Kane. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Shy aromas of dark red fruits and nutty oak. Discretely concentrated black cherry and blueberry flavors with moderately firm tannins, a hint of oak and a sweet-fruited finish.

14.2% alc., 100 cases, $40. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Aromas of earth-kissed black cherry and walnut lead to a mid weight plus styled wine driven by black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors. The fruit is well-ripened but not overripe. Creamy in texture, with a sweet-fruited finish of good generosity and length. Even more appealing when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 89.

2012 The Winery SF North Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $30. From a San Francisco urban winery located on San Francisco‚Äôs historic Treasure island. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Bright aromas of cherry, strawberry, rose petal and briar initially, fading somewhat over time in the glass. A cherry jubilee with hints of black raspberry, spice, and savory herbs.
