2011 Maggy Hawk Unforgettable Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

15.1% alc., pH 3.68, TA 0.54, 196 cases, $66. Dijon clone 667. Aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 26% new. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose leads with effusive aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, cherry, redwood and forest floor. Soft and smooth on the palate with a mid weight array of dark cherry and berry flavors complimented by a savory, “woodsy” tone that is hard to describe but very likable. Oak-driven notes of anise and toast play in the background. Juicy acidity brings the wine on target. Score: 92. Reviewed May 25, 2015
