2014 Tessier Morelli Lane Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 95 cases, $39. Clones 114 and Pommard. Aged in 25% new French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Deep aromas of black cherry with a bit of dried herbs. A mid weight complement of black cherry and black raspberry fruits aims to please, accented with echoes of oak, and backed by ripe fruit tannins that are in sync. The fruit persists through the mid palate to a vigorous finish of some note. Score: 91. Reviewed February 5, 2016
