2015 Domaine De La Côte la Côte Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 370 cases, $90. 100% whole cluster. Aged in French oak barrels, 45% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. The whole cluster inspired nose offers aromas of cherry, burnt tobacco and smoked paprika. Brimming with red fruits, this middleweight styled wine has refined tannins, vital acidity, an extra bit of sophistication, complexity donated by whole cluster inclusion, and a perky finish that inspires another sip. Score: 94. Reviewed October 22, 2017
