2019 Red Electric Interurban Armstrong Vineyard Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., pH 3.62, TA 0.55, 670 cases, $28. A blend that reflects the entire Armstrong vineyard composed of every block and clone of Pinot Noir in the vineyard. The wine is intended to be more open and immediately enjoyable than the other blends. Aged 18 months on the lees in French oak barrels, 9% new and 20% one-yearold with the remaining 4-years-old or older. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Instantly gratifying in a mid-weight plus style offering inspired aromas of dark red cherry, Marionberry and classic RR bramble. A wine with gracious power, offering flavors of dark cherry and purple and black berry with welcome spice. Easygoing, with tame tannins, wellintegrated oak, and a clean lengthy finish. Still superb when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. (Note: this is one helluva value in premium Pinot Noir!) Score: 94. Reviewed February 21, 2022
