2015 WesMar Hellenthal Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $55. Field blend of Pommard, Mt. Eden and Swan. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Brooding and rustic aromas of black fruits, wet mulch and barn initially. Not particularly charming, even grumpy when first opened, with a mid weight plus core of purple and black berry fruits framed by firm but not aggressive tannins. This wine typically needs time in bottle and was more giving when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, when it showed more aromatic promise, a satiny texture and an agreeable savory aspect. My deserve a higher score in three to five years if you are patient. Score: 91. Reviewed March 17, 2018
