2014 L’Oliveto Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., pH 3.59, TA 0.64, $26. Sourced from Hurst Vineyard in the Sebastopol Hills and Cousins Vineyard in the central Russian River Valley. 66% de-stemmed, with 33% whole cluster added to the bottom of the tank. 5-day cold soak, feral fermentations. Aged 11 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Shy, but pleasant aromas of cherry and woodshed. Soft and velvety in the mouth with a modestly concentrated core of cherry and cranberry fruits framed by a woody thread. Easy to drink, with well-concealed tannins and a short finish. Score: 88.
