2015 Two Sisters Lindsay’s Vineyard Reserve Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.57, TA 0.67, 301 cases. $80. Extremely heavy bottle. Clones 667 and 777. Average harvest Brix 25º. 100% destemmed with no crushing and cold soaked in open-top fermenters. Manual punch downs. 70% MLF. Aged 16 months in French oak barrels, 100% new. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Splendid aromas of black cherry, earth, herbs and toasty oak. Rich, full and sweet on the palate in a full-bodied style offering a plush black cherry fruit core accented by toast and licorice notes. The tannins are folded in and their is enough acidity for freshness. This is clearly a serious wine with intentions, but it will need more time in bottle to integrate more of the oak and reach full expression. Exceptional when tasted two days later from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 93. Reviewed October 8, 2017 ARTICLE »
