Soter Vineyards, 2013 Soter Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Ranch

"The 2013 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Ranch includes 30% whole cluster and was aged for 12 months in 40% new French oak. It has a rather broody bouquet at first - Morello cherry and boysenberry, the whole cluster imparting subtle sous-bois aromas. It just needs some bottle age to open. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp red cherries and fresh strawberry; it has fine tannins and a harmonious, sensual finish that is sophisticated and plain delicious. This is a great Pinot Noir from Soter."

"Firm in texture, with a grip of tannins around mineral-laced blackberry and licorice flavors, persisting into a plush finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,150 cases made."
