Blended of 55% DuMOL Estate vineyard and 45% Occidental Road vineyards, the 2014 Pinot Noir Finn has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and notes of black cherries, black raspberries and anise plus underlying suggestions of yeast, potpourri, underbrush and cedar. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of opulent fruit on offer, it has a seamless backbone of very fine tannins and gorgeous freshness, finishing long and minerally. (LPB)
Once again, the 2014 Pinot Noir Finn is the star. Silky, perfumed and boisterous, but with striking underlying salinity, the Finn is wonderfully complete. Ripe red and purplish fruit tones, lavender, mint and rose petal burst forward. Unlike so many other Russian River Pinots, the Finn has exceptional tension and minerality that shape the wine and bring all of the elements together. (AG)
Here, again, is a Pinot of considerable substance and size whose deep and defined fruit preempts pushy ripeness, and, just as is the case with its similarly well-stuffed mates, it is both very rich and still years away from finding its fullest voice. It has all of the pieces in place to age exceptionally well but needs time for them to fully integrate, and we have absolutely no doubts whatsoever that it will start to display more layered richness and tactile polish some three or four years hence and is a sure bet to improve for at least twice as long. Its virtues are obvious now, but it would be a shame to see it drunk up too early. *Two Stars*
Beautifully proportioned, with acidity, tannins and rich, juicy wild berry flavors working together. This baby needs time before it can walk and run, but the signs are all there. A laser beam of Pinot. (JL)
