2013 O’Connor Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., 352 cases, $35. Newly designed label, new vineyard manager, and new winemaker Ron Johnson. Pommard and 115 from 3.5- acre vineyard in Sebastopol. Harvest Brix 24.9º. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Lovely aromas of Bing cherry, baking and wood spices and sandalwood.The cherry cola essence charges out of the bottle initially in a light to mid weight style wine that is fresh and juicy. There is noticeable but not imposing oak infusion and the gentle tannins in the background provide adequate structure. This wine has a classic Russian River Valley profile in a more feminine style. Score: 90. Reviewed June 5, 2015
