2009 Richard Berridge Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., pH 3.43, TA 0.62, 247 cases, $45, released October 1, 2010. 94% Londer Vineyard. Aged in 41% new, 35% twice used and 18% once used French oak barrels. · Well oaked with fruit aromas and flavors of dark red cherries, plums and ripe strawberries. Soft on the palate with supple tannins. Nicely crafted in its style, but I prefer less oak. Good (+). Reviewed June 24, 2012
