2013 Sedition Chenoweth Vineyards Green Valley of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
13.8% alc., pH 3.43, TA 0.68, 230 cases, $75. Pommard (Chenoweth Vineyards) and clones 667 and “828” (Graham Family Vineyard). Harvest Brix 25º. Aged 16 months in 33% new French oak barrels. · Light cherry red color in the glass. The nose is quite savory featuring aromas of underbrush, sous bois, and herbs with demure notes of red cherry. Red-fruited and slightly confected, with a savory herbal thread in the background. Smooth in the mouth with buried tannins and a satisfying, bright finish. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the cherry theme was front and center, the tannins had moved further into the background and the herbal thread provided interest. Score: 90. Reviewed April 2, 2016 ARTICLE »
