2011 Heart & Hands Finger Lakes Pinot Noir

11.8% alc., pH 3.51, TA 0.66, 628 cases, $21. Sourced from Patrician Verona, Elaine‚Äôs and Hobbit Hollow vineyards. Yields 1.9 tons per acre. 50% whole cluster. Aged in 32% new French oak barrels. · Light reddish-salmon color in the glass. Delicate aromas of red cherries, red raspberries, dried herbs and the slightest oak. Very demure and elegant, but offering pleasant flavors of red fruits and some satisfying cherry on the finish. The oak is slightly imposing and there is a subtle canned vegetal note in the background. Score: 85. Reviewed December 18, 2013
