2011 Heart & Hands Hobbit Hollow Vineyard Finger Lakes Pinot Noir

12.3% alc., pH 3.75, TA 0.62, 49 cases, $31. This vineyard is located on the western side of Skaneateles Lake on the lakeshore. The owner is Mike Falcone and the vineyard manager is Paul Wellington. Yield 1.8 tons per acre. 100% whole cluster. Unfined and unfiltered. · Light reddish-salmon color in the glass. More intense cherry aroma and flavor in this wine with a dusting of oak and spice. The firm but not astringent tannins are supportive and the mid palate fruit carries over nicely to the satisfying and juicy finish. Score: 89. Reviewed December 18, 2013
