2010 LaRue Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., 310 cases, $68. Aged 16 months in 40% new French oak barrels. Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Heavenly aromas of Bing cherry, mushroom, rose petal, underbrush, · spice and everything nice. Delicious essence of black cherries complimented by a hint of spice and herbs. Impeccably balanced with luxurious texture and a big, deeply flavored, cherry finish. Score: 93. Reviewed May 15, 2014
