2011 Zepaltas Nunes Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., pH 3.65, TA 0.60, 48 cases, $42. Clones 777 and 115. Aged 14 months in 40% new French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. A melange of aromas including dusty dark cherries, blueberries, rose petal, cocoa and a hint of straw. An elegant, easy drinking wine with the tasty essence of fresh cherries with a touch of spice and oak. Light in weight, with gossamer tannins, and a kiss of cherry on the finish. Good.
