2013 Red Car Heaven & Earth Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., pH 3.70, TA 0.55, 570 cases, $68 (sold out). Sourced from Bohemian Station Vineyard located on a south-facing hillside in a valley, just east of Occidental. The site is notable for its “cool sunshine.” Calera and Dijon “828.” 15% whole cluster, wild yeast fermentation. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months, 25% new and 75% neutral. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with aromas of black cherry, plum, spice and rose. Delightful flavors of purple berries, plum and spice are accented with a hint of oak and forest floor. The velvety texture is very seductive, the tannins are firm but not hard, and the finish offers plenty of length. Score: 92. Reviewed June 14, 2015
