2015 Yamakiri Filigreen Farm Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $33. Produced and Balo Vineyards as a custom crush client by Yamakiri Wines, Philo. Name means, “Mountain Fog.” · Moderate ruby red color in the glass. Lovely aromas of red grape, cherry, rose in bloom, and earthy vegetation. Light to mid weight flavors of cherry, cranberry and spice framed by spirited acidity and notable fine-grain tannins. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the wine was even more appealing with better acid and tannin integration. Score: 89.
