2015 Calera Selleck Vineyard Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., pH 3.53, TA 0.72, 125 cases, $95. Vines planted in 1975 on a tiny 4.8-acre vineyard. Yield in 2015 0.35 tons per acre. Average harvest Brix 24.0ยบ. Aged 17 months in French oak barrels, 30% new, 10% second, 60% neutral. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. This wine displays the ripest fruit profile in the 2015 lineup tasted, featuring aromas and flavors of black raspberry, black cherry and blackberry. The fruit flavors are really delightful although a little too ripe for me to fully embrace. The wine has impeccable harmony, with very fine-grain tannins, an appealing earthiness, a compliment of underlying oak, and a big, fruitladen finish. Score: 93. Reviewed February 23, 2019
