2014 Girasole Vineyard Mendocino County Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 6,545 cases, $16. Released July 15, 2016. Family owned and operated vineyards with some dating to the 1950s. Certified organic by CCOF and vegan friendly. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with aromas of cherry reduction sauce, red berries, spice and organic flora. Pleasing charge of deep cherry cola and root beer flavor on the attack, carrying through a modestly generous finish. Good harmony is achieved through a balanced tannic backbone and well-integrated, juicy acidity. Score: 89. Reviewed September 7, 2016
