2017 Roger Roessler Wines Black Pine Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., pH 3.74, TA 0.56, $30. Sourced from three vineyards in the western Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Petaluma Gap. Native and organic french yeast driven fermentation. Aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 20% new. · Dark garnet color in the glass. Aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, wine cave and fertile earth with a hint of volatile acidity. Full-bodied in style with a full monty of purple and blackberry fruits backed by well structured tannins. Lower in acidic verve with a well-managed compliment of oak and a generous fruit-filled finish. What this wine lacks in nuance and finesse, it makes up for it in decadent fruit. Score: 90.
