2010 Bluxome Street Winery Mariah Vineyard Mendocino Ridge Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 200 cases, $45. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of forest floor, ripe black cherries, and spicy oak. Vibrant plum, black raspberry and black cherry fruits that are backed by lively acidity. There is a bit of the forest mulch in this wine. Oak is a noticeable adjunct but integrates over time in the glass. The fruit is really stunning and hangs on for dear life on the long finish. Very good. Reviewed June 23, 2013
