2017 POE Van Der Kamp Vineyard Sonoma Mountain Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $45. Said to be from original planting30% whole cluster, native yeast fermentation. Aged 12 months in 30% new French oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Complex nose displaying aromas of black cherry, spice, white pepper, rose petal and earthy flora. Light to mid-weight in style, offering flavors of dark cherry and purple berry with undertones of dried green herbs and pastoral flora. Silky in texture, with modest tannins that leave a slight astringency on the finish. I like this wine for its uniqueness. Score: 92. Reviewed August 27, 2020
