2013 Stoller Vineyard Pinot Noir
The warmth of Stoller Vineyards, especially when a year finishes with a cool spell, can be so nicely balanced you would never know we had 6 inches of rain over a weekend during harvest. The Pinot Noir that came from 2013 is so nicely balanced, you would guess it was a perfect 70 degrees all summer long, and into harvest. The nose has ripe plum, red apple skin, cocoa, and cherry cola, with the earthiness and baking spice classic of the Stoller site. The palate is round, fleshy, voluptuously soft, mouth-coating, and finishing with velveteen tannins and soft, accepting acid…so comfy you might just stay there in the warmth for a while.
