2011 Maggy Hawk Hawkster Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

15.0% alc., pH 3.69, TA 0.54, 195 cases, $66. Wädenswil 2A clone. Aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 39% new. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Very shy aromas of dark cherry and berry with a hint of marzipan and spice. Well-endowed with luscious cherry and berry fruits with a noticeable oak overlay that compliments rather than intrudes. The tannins are modest and supportive, and the finish has a generous richness. Score: 91. Reviewed May 25, 2015
