Nice balance of currant/dark fruits and grilled meat/smoke. Flavor profile was right in the middle - not overly exuberant nor too muddy.

2011 Three Sticks Head High

Sonoma Valley Red Blend more

7/3/2015 - danielbleier Likes this wine: 92 points

Just a really, really good drinker. Bright red fruits, sweet spice - energizing acidity. Haven't seen this wine since the '08 - and I may have been overly excited about that one, but this version proves that 3 sticks knows something about good wine.

in addition to the expected cherry and plum notes, I got some rhubarb to make this a distinctive pinot - the finish is a clove and cinnamon blend.

This bottle reflects the lean 2011 vintage...taut minerality plays against plum and dark cherry flavors.

6/20/2015 - danielbleier Likes this wine: 91 points

Could be bottle variation or that this wine has lost some of its youthful power and energy. Pretty close to a St. Joseph in its profile, plum and bitter cherry, some mild earthy tones.
