2017 Keller Estate Precioso Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $. 100% de-stemmed. Clone “828,” and Pommard. Native yeast fermentation. Aged in 50% new French oak barrels. · 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.
