2014 Square Peg SP-SL Vineyard Block 1 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.67, TA 0.56, 190 cases, $55. Harvest Brix 25.3º. 100% Calera selection. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of toasty oak with demure notes of black cherry. Welcome charge of black cherry and black raspberry fruit mid weight flavors presented in a polished style with added accents of oak char, tea leaf, cola and spice. The oak is better integrated on the palate, the texture is quite silky, and the juicy finish attracts attention. Score: 90. Reviewed February 1, 2017 ARTICLE »

2014 Square Peg SP-SL Vineyard Block 8 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.60, TA 0.56, 170 cases, $55. Harvest Brix 24.2º. · Light reddish purple color in the glass. Opens with a heavy dose of cardamom, clove and toast aromas, transitioning over time in the glass to Bing cherry, tobacco leaf and spice. Mid weight in style, with a tasty core of fresh, even crunchy, black cherry fruit infused with a riff of smoke, toast and savory herbs. The wine sports easygoing fine-grain tannins, and noticeable length on the satisfying finish. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the nose was still demurely perfumed with fruit and noticeably oak inspired, and the cherry and blueberry fruit flavors offered excellent vigor. Tasted twice. Score: 89. Reviewed February 1, 2017 ARTICLE »

2013 Square Peg SP-SL Vineyard Block 8 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.70, TA 0.59, 224 cases, $55. Harvest Brix 24.8º. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The nose offers a nice blend of cherry fruit and savory notes of toast, spice, and wilted rose. Elegantly crafted, with a bright core of mid weight Bing cherry fruit framed by toasty oak and backed by silky tannins. Gorgeous essence of cherry fruit, but I wish the wine had slightly less oak influence. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the nose was still captivating and the oak character had lessened. Score: 89. Reviewed February 1, 2017 ARTICLE »
