2012 Vin Ver’Ray Conzelman Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 250 cases, $23. A Nicholson Jones Selection wine vinified by winemaker Julien Fayard. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, mocha and new oak lead to a full-bodied charge of sappy black cherry and black raspberry fruits that are nicely tempered by a velvety tannic structure. The alcohol load is in balance as well. This wine really delivers a mouthful of flavor, but avoids a jammy course, retains a suavity and really satisfies. Score: 90.
