2014 Alma Fria Doña Margarita Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., 195 cases, $62. Vineyard planted in 2002 in Freestone at 400-625 feet elevation. 10% whole cluster. Native fermentation, aged 12 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Shy, but pleasant aromas of cherry, red berry, sandalwood and rose petal. Elegantly composed and nicely balanced, with light to mid weight flavors of cherry, grape, boysenberry, spice and cedary oak. Very giving now, with gossamer tannins and a finish filled with spiced fruit goodness. Score: 92. Reviewed December 13, 2016
