2007 Small Vines MK Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.68, 147 cases, $65. Organically farmed. Clones: Dijon 114, 115, 667 and 777. Native yeast fermentation and MLF. Aged 15 months on fine lees in 66% new French oak, unfined and unfiltered. Tasted at the Sloan’s estate vineyard. · A striking wine with a little more tannic backbone, more earthiness and darker fruits than the Russian River Valley bottling. Lightly oaked, with a spicy and tenacious palate and great persistence. Reviewed April 8, 2010
