2015 Anaba Soberanes Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., pH 3.45, TA 0.64, 148 cases, $52. Pisoni selection. Harvest Brix 23.8ยบ. 100% de-stemmed, 4 to 5-day cold soak, fermented in stainless. Aged 20 months in French oak barrels, 33% new. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Extremely shy nose offering subtle aromas of cherry, sandalwood and oak vanillin. On the palate, the wine offers good depth and length of red and black cherry and black raspberry fruit flavors. The sleek texture is appealing due to milky tannins. The finish is modest but satisfying. Unchanged when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. A delicate interpretation of this vineyard. Score: 90.
