2014 WesMar Hellenthal Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 200 cases, $50. 14.66 acres located on Bohan Dillon Road in Cazadero in the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. Vineyard has three interplanted clones planted at 1053 feet elevation. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is primary, even when checked the following day. More expressive on the palate, with opulent flavors of blackberry and boysenberry, as well as iron and earth. Good harmony, with slick tannins and power to spare on the finish. A bit of an enigma now, this wine will need more time in the cellar to unleash its aromatics and nuances, but its nobility is evident. Score: 92-93. Reviewed March 29, 2017
