2013 Benovia Tilton Hill Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., pH 3.66, TA 0.61, 492 cases, $56. Released September 2015. Aged in 38% new French oak barrels. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Very fragrant perfume of blackberry, sage, and sous-bois. Elegantly styled, with soft tannins caressing a mid weight core of blue and black berry fruits. Slightly feral with an iron thread running through. Plenty of length on the finish. Even better the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle when the wine was more aromatic and flavorful. This is a wine that has somewhere to go over the coming years. Score: 93.
