2014 Anaba Westlands Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., pH 3.59, TA 0.56, 264 cases, $54. The name of this wine is a nod to the West Sonoma Coast. O’Connor, Barlow Lane Private and Mariani vineyards. Pommard, Swan and 115 clones. Harvest Brix 23.5º. 100% de-stemmed. 5-day cold soak, gentle pump overs and punch downs. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 30% new. Winemakers Ross Cobb and Katy Wilson. · Light ruby red color in the glass. Welcoming aromas of red cherry and berry, burnt tobacco and fertile earth. Light to mid weight and bright and juicy in style, with a core of fresh cherry and raspberry fruit weathered to a bit of tobacco flavor. Very delicate with dapper tannins and an uplifting finish. Score: 90. Reviewed January 6, 2018
