2014 Press Cellars Helluva Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $N/A (2013 vintage was $30 and a Double Gold Winner at 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition). Pommard clone. Aged 11 months in French oak barrels, 60% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Inviting aromas of black cherry, raspberry, dark red rose and toasty oak. Impressive attack of cherry fruit that is expansive in the mid palate and finishes with length. A bit of baking spice, brown sugar and dark chocolate add interest. Ideal balance, with a glorious finish that goes on and on. A real find. Score: 93. Reviewed May 7, 2017
