Dark red and purplish hued fruits, wild flowers, mint, spices and rose petal notes meld together in the 2014 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard. The Cerise is deceptively medium in body, but it packs serious intensity. Expressive, floral-infused aromatics give the Cerise its inner sweetness and perfume, while beams of underlying tannin give the wine its shape. This is another superb wine from Knez. I was deeply impressed with these wines from Knez. According to winemaker Anthony Filiberti, naturally occurring low yields in 2014, along with less juice per ton than recent vintages such as 2012 and 2013, combined to produce unusually rich wines. Filiberti adds that sugars were actually quite modest, but that long fermentations gave the wines their their intense, rich textures. Readers who want to know why the 2014 vintage is magical for Pinot Noir will want to check out these wines from Knez. (AG)
