2015 Cellars 33 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., pH 3.56, TA 0.635, RX 0 g/L, 175 cases, $30. A blend from two diverse vineyard sites including one in the hills west of Westside Road and Hummingbird Hill Vineyard located in the Petaluma Gap. Harvest Brix 23.5ยบ. Aged 10 months in neutral French oak barrels. Bottled unfiltered. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Aromas of blueberry, briar, rye crisp and nutty oak lead to a light to mid weight styled wine featuring flavors of blueberry and purple grape with subtle oak in the background and a citric thread also plying the background. Soft tannins and a plush mouth feel offered promise but the wine finished with a sweet and sour tone. Score: 87. Reviewed January 6, 2018
