2015 Vaughn Duffy Wines Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., $36. A blend of several vineyard sources. · Dark reddish purple color in the glass. A bit youthful and clumsy, but the potential is evident. The aromas of black cherry liquor and orange zest are shy and the full-bodied flavors of black cherry and black raspberry are not as expressive as they will be. Deeply concentrated fruit with balanced tannins and a vibrant acid backbone. The finish is particularly intense and persistent. Score: 91. Reviewed October 2, 2016
