2012 Dunstan Durell Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., Unreleased. Same vinification as the 2011 vintage. Aged in 40% new French oak barrels. Bottled 1 month before this tasting. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Subdued, but pleasant aromas of red cherry, loam and spice. Delicious with obvious potential, featuring vivid flavors of raspberry, cherry and spice. The oak is fully integrated and the fine-grain tannins are only modestly imposing. Terrific charm with a glorious cherry-driven finish. Score: 93. Reviewed July 19, 2014
