2014 Terragena Wiley Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., pH 3.50, TA 0.69, 72 cases, $39. Released July 28, 2016. Inaugural release from this iconic vineyard located in the deep end of the Anderson Valley. Clones 777, 667, 115, 37, 538 and Pommard. Aged in Hungarian and French oak barrels. · Light ruby red color in the glass. The perfume of cherry, oak spice, forest and pipe smoke is appealing. Light in weight with a core of red cherry and red cranberry fruit laced with a burnt tobacco note. Exquisite balance, with a satiny mouthfeel, and a modest finish. The fruit seems to have been harvested a little short of full ripeness but that may be the intended style. Score: 89. Reviewed October 8, 2017
