2014 Domaine De La Côte Sta. Rita Hills AVA Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., 3,294 cases, $45. Estate grown, produced and bottled. 50% whole cluster, aged in 0% new French oak barrels. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Pleasing scent of cherry, raspberry, rose petal, pine needle and underbrush. Very elegant, juicy and refreshing in a mid weight styled wine with uplifting flavors of black cherry and black raspberry framed by silky smooth tannins and supported by the acidity Sta. Rita Hills is known for. Tart cherry returns in waves on the lip-smacking finish. An excellent way to sample the DDLC style with some retail availability. Still solid the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 90. Reviewed February 13, 2017
