2013 Red Car Hagan Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., TA 0.51, 380 cases, $68. Vineyard is located 4.6 miles from the Pacific Ocean on a windswept ridge at 850 feet. Average harvest Brix 22ยบ. Calera, 777 and 115 clones planted in Goldridge sandy loam. 11% whole cluster. Aged 12 months in 27% new and 73% neutral French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Reserved nose offering demure aromas of black cherry, briar and rose petal. Delicious core of vivid black cherry and black raspberry fruits that saturate the palate and persist through a remarkably intense finish that really grabs hold. Seductively silky with fine-grain tannins and a savory riff of spice. Score: 92. Reviewed November 22, 2015
