2015 Maggy Hawk Hawkster Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 495 cases, $66. Clone W├Ądenswil 2A. A 6.18- acre block. Aged 16 months in French oak barrels. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Reserved, but pleasing aromas of forest and blackberry fruit. Both earthy and fruity, exhibiting a mid weight core of fresh black cherry and black raspberry sap clothed in gracious toasty oak. Soft and silken in the mouth with a notable juiciness and a big, even giant, persistent finish. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, that glorious finish continued to grab my attention. Score: 94. Reviewed March 17, 2018
