2013 Joseph Jewell Elk Prairie Vineyard Humboldt County Pinot Noir

12.91% alc., 50 cases, $39. This vineyard is located at 1200 feet elevation on Fruitland Ridge. · Light strawberry red in color, Highly aromatic, with a perfume of strawberry shortcake, red cherry and sandalwood. Lighter in weight, featuring flavors of red cherry, red berry, strawberry, blueberry and spice. The tannins are hidden, and the finish is mildly tart. Considerably more enjoyable when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, showing soaring aromatics and highly expressive fruit with plenty of charm. Score: 91.
