2013 Cellars 33 Gloria Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., pH 3.60, TA 0.60, 120 cases, $45. Release date August 25, 2015. The second vintage from the estate vineyard at Freeman Vineyard & Winery. Harvest Brix 24.4º. Pommard, 115, Calera and Martini clones. Aged 10 months in once-used Francois Frères oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Aromas of cherry and sous-bois dance from the glass. Light to mid weight flavors of cherry, raspberry and spice expand in the mouth to fill every nook and cranny. Highly appealing with very soft tannins, admirable finesse, and impeccable balance. The finish is loaded with cherry swagger, but this wine is more about personality than power. Score: 92.
