2010 Furthermore Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., 76 cases, $50 (375 ml, $25). Average harvest Brix 27.6º. Native fermentation. Aged 12 months in 33% new French oak barrels. · Moderately dark reddishpurple color in the glass. Very nicely appointed wine with lovely aromas of dark red cherries and berries, rose petals and the inside of a woman!s leather glove. Discreetly concentrated core of dark red fruits with a savory, herbal undertone. The oak is well-integrated, the tannins are ripe and balanced, and there is a satisfying kick of acidity on the finish which is of extraordinary length, lasting more than 30 seconds. Drink or hold. Score: 92. Reviewed September 5, 2013
