Articles About Wait Cellars
2012 Wait Cellars Devoto Garden Vineyard Green Valley of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
13.5% alc., 315 cases, $32. 100% clone “828.” 20% whole cluster, 5-day cold soak, indigenous fermentations, aged 10 months sur lie in 15% new and 15% onefilled French oak. Lees stirring through the winter. · Moderate reddish purple color and slightly hazy in the glass. This wine definitely exhibits signs of whole cluster in a good way. Aromas of cherry and raspberry are complimented by notes of stem, herbs and graham. Discreetly concentrated flavors of fresh, juicy red cherry, red raspberry and baking spice supported by modest tannins and bright acidity. The finish is particularly appealing, with a vibrant charge of iced cherry fruit. Plenty of Pinot singing in this beautifully crafted wine. Score: 92. Reviewed May 15, 2014 ARTICLE »
