2017 Keller Estate Precioso Estate Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., pH 3.63, TA 0.55, 44 cases, $80. Harvest Brix 24.8ยบ. 100% de-stemmed. 5-day cold soak, slow fermentation, 3-day post fermentation cold maceration. Racked once before bottling and filtered. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Reserved, but pleasant aromas of black cherry, fertile earth and marzipan. A little riper fruit flavors are featured that include an array of purple and black fruits backed by gentle tannins. A nuttiness, presumably from oak, is rather prominent and detracted from the overall impression. The grand finish is noticeably long that is only fitting for this barrel selection wine. Score: 92.
