2012 Dolin Talley Rincon Vineyard Arroyo Grande Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.65, TA 0.56, 172 cases, $45. Clones 667 and 777. Aged 20 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. There is plenty of charm in this wine that offers bright scents of plum, black raspberry, sous-bois and toasty oak. The luscious, rich core of boysenberry and plum fruits is backed by firm, fine-grain tannins. This is a mouth coating wine that is hedonistic yet angelic, and offers a very long and richly fruited finish. Score: 92. Reviewed January 22, 2015
