2014 Briceland Phelps Vineyard Humboldt County Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., 71 cases, $35. Organically grown grapes. Aged more than one year in French oak barrels. Bottled unfixed and unfiltered. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, sweet oak and terra-cotta lead to a mid weight wine featuring flavors of black cherry, dark berry, spice and disagreeable oily note. Welcome generous fruit on the finish, but also significant fine-grain tannins that stick out. Score: 88. Reviewed October 22, 2017
