2011 Heart & Hands Hobbit Hollow Vineyard Finger Lakes Pinot Noir

12.1% alc., pH 3.79, TA 0.65, 24 cases, $30.99, Vino-Lok closure. Vineyard is located on the shores of the western side of Skaneateles Lake. Owner is Mike Falcone and vineyard manager is Paul Wellington. Yields 1.4 tons per acre. 100% whole cluster. Aged in Francois Frères French oak barrels. Unfiltered. · Light reddish-purple color in the glass. An intriguing wine offering aromas of cherries, creme soda, vanilla, and sandalwood. Light and elegant with flavors of fresh cherries, oak vanillin, spice and bacon. Gentle, dry tannins and bright acidity make for easy drinking. Still holding nicely two days later from a previously opened and recorked bottle. Very good. Reviewed December 8, 2012
