2015 Cellars 33 Hummingbird Hill Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., pH 3.60, TA 0.604, RS 0 g/L, 150 cases, $48. Pommard and Rochioli clones. Harvest Brix 23.9ยบ. 100% de-stemmed, 50% native and 50% inoculated primary fermentation with native malolactic fermentation. Aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 33% new. Bottled unfiltered. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. The nose is primary upon opening but pleasant, offering aromas of black cherry and rye toast. Discreetly dense and sappy, featuring luscious black cherry and black raspberry fruit flavors in tune with oak support. Nicely balanced, with admirable finishing persistence. Score: 90.
