2010 Aubert UV-SL Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

15.0% alc., $80. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of smoky oak, tea leaf, oil and faint black fruit jam. Oak-infused flavors of dark berries, plum and cassis. Meaty with plenty of dry tannin, finishing juicy with good acidity. A man’s Pinot with full-on extraction displaying more oak at presence than I prefer. Wellcrafted in its style. Good.
