2010 Friends & Family Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 75 cases. Contains all clones from the vineyard: 38% Rochioli, 25% “DRC,” 20% Pommard, and 12% 2A. Winemaker Jason Drew. · Moderate reddishpurple color in the glass. The nose is crazy good with deep, penetrating aromas of wild berries and spice. Soft and smooth on the palate with layered flavors of darker berries and plum sauce with a slight hint of oak in the background. Rich and sappy and definitely on the ripe side, but a delight to drink. Good tension, beautifully crafted, and sporting the signature Weir finish. Lucky family and friends. Drink or hold. Score: 93.
