2013 Alma Fria Doña Margarita Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., 143 cases, $58. Vineyard planted in 2002 in Freestone at 500 to 625 feet elevation. 10% whole cluster. Native yeast fermentation, aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 25% new. · Moderately dark reddish purple hue in the glass. The nose is alive with aromas of black cherry, rose petal and woodshed. Imposing flavors of dark cherry, purple grape and berry, and vivid spice grab on to the palate and finish with an intense flourish. Fine-grain tannins add an appealing touch to the texture. A classy wine. Score: 92. Reviewed November 22, 2015
