The 2011 Pinot Noir Finn is soft, seductive and polished. Here it is the wine's sensuality and racy, perfumed personality that stands out most. This is one of the most forward, fruit-driven Pinots. At the same time the Finn is beautifully layered, supple and perfumed throughout. Bright floral and red-toned tones add considerable lift on the finish.
A stunning effort is the 2011 Pinot Noir Finn, which comes from the DuMol Vineyard (two-thirds) and the rest from vineyards near Occidental on the Sonoma Coast. Made from multiple clones, it possesses fabulous intensity for a 2011 along with a deep plum/ruby/purple-tinged color, and a sweet perfume of boysenberries, blackberries and cherries intermixed with hints of lavender and forest floor. This beautifully textured, full-bodied, shockingly superb 2011 Pinot Noir was clearly harvested before the damaging rains began in October. Enjoy it over the next 6-8 years. (RP)
Good full red. Reticent but pure nose hints at black cherry. Sappy and tight, showing little in the way of easy sweetness but communicating an impression of strong extract. With aeration, red and darker fruit flavors emerged and the wine softened to show a more velvety texture. This Pinot has a relatively high pH for the vintage (3.6) and will rely more on its tannins than on its acidity for spine.
Intense and gutsy, this has a firm core of raspberry, wild berry and crushed rock surrounded by enticing floral scents. Gains depth and fans out on the finish. Drink now through 2019.
