Fallon Place Winery Herbitage Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014 Los Carneros, Sonoma County California

My Rating 85 Points.

Price $36.

Light ruby in color with medium intensity and a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose with bing cherries, strawberries, barnyard, oak, light vanilla, licorice, green vegetables, cola, light alcohol, pencil lead, wet leaves, dirt, spices and black pepper.

Light in body with high acidity, soft and elegant with nice legs.

Dry on the palate with strawberries, raspberries, bitter herbs, spices, green vegetables, dark chocolates, black pepper, graphite, earth and wood.

Medium plus in finish with no tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very elegant Pinot Noir from Sonoma County, California. Not fully balanced, but shows nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

This Single Vineyard red is showing lots of earthy notes with light red fruits. Burgundinian style.

Not good right out of the bottle, and needs an hour in a decanter to open up properly. Might need more bottle time.

Not a sipping wine, but rather a good food wine right now. Tangy and interesting, but a little bitter for my taste.

Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. A small production of only 60 cases.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
