2015 Kingston Family Vineyards CJ’s Barrel Casablanca Chile Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 75 cases, $44. A very limited production wine that was aged in 100% neutral oak. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, spice and tobacco lead to a mid weight plus styled wine with a copious charge of dark purple and black fruits. Refined and uplifting with good tannic bones and admirable balance. The oak is surprisingly expressive considering that neutral oak barrels were used. This wine should benefit from more time in bottle. Score: 90-91. Reviewed October 30, 2016
