2011 Masút Vineyard and Winery Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir, Mendocino County, CA, $40 (S) – Rating 91

Named a “Wineries to watch in 2013” by the Press Democrat, this complex Pinot is one of the reasons why. Produced from Estate fruit, Dijon Pinot Noir clones 113, 115 and 777, aged 11 months in French oak (35% new) and bottled unfined and unfiltered. A charmingly rustic and briary nose of dark cherries is the prelude to deep flavors of dark cherry, ripe raspberry and notes of campfire smoke with hints of chocolate in the long finish. Buy This Wine
