2013 Migration Goldrock Ridge Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.67, TA 0.52, 300 cases, $68. Harvest Brix 25.0ยบ. This vineyard is a few miles from the Pacific Ocean at an elevation of about 600 feet. Aged 11 months in French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Shy, but pleasing aromas of blackberry, woodland and nutty oak. Engaging flavors of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry in a mid weight style that sports noticeable but not weighty tannins. The overall impression is one of great harmony and polish and a memorable spiced berry and plum flavored finish. Tasted eight hours later from a previously opened and recorked bottle, the wine had come together even more beautifully and offered an arsenal of Pinot joy. Score: 93. Reviewed June 5, 2015
