WHOA Farm Crane Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
Brilliant ruby with a dark robe. Pretty nose of Santa Rosa plum, cranberry, and red cherries all encased in seductive spices. The exotic aromas are clove, cinnamon, cardamom and dried mushroom. Silky palate that has more weight than the 2012 ... but with fine, seductive tannins. All of the hallmarks of the superb 2013 vintage are on display as the wine has power without being heavy, glorious aromatics, and sublime textures. A long mouthwatering finish that mirrors the nose, while adding on a dusty minerality completes the package.
