2014 Maggy Hawk Stormin’ Maggy Hawk Estate Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., pH 3.77, TA 0.57, 297 cases, $66. Clone 667. 5-day cold soak, slow moving AMII yeast fermentation, daily punch downs, and aged 16 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Vivacious aromas of black cherry, blackberry and brioche. Just terrific smells. Descriptors can’t do justice to this gorgeous wine that offers delicious flavors of blueberry, blackberry and cola with a commendatory touch of earthiness and oak. The balance is spot-on, the gentle fine-grain tannins make for easy approachability, and the extraordinary finish is particularly noteworthy. Score: 96. Reviewed May 7, 2017
