2013 Tessier Winery Saveria Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 100 cases, $38. Aged in 25% new French oak. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, strawberry, and dried rose petal really draw you into the glass. Very suave and pleasurable on the palate with a juicy attack of fresh cherry and cranberry fruits wrapped in fine-grain tannins. Nicely balanced with good oak integration, finishing strong with plenty of red berry delight. Score: 92. Reviewed December 10, 2014
