  • 2013 Zepaltas Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

    Nose is like sniffing a bushel of raspberries with just a hint of spice from oak.

    The palate is somewhat fruit forward but not in any way overdone. The raspberries are savory, not sweet and a bit of spice comes through in the finish. Tannins are already in check. Balanced.

    Delicious and approachable now but should improve with short term cellaring. I recommend a 6-month rest but no crime to check in early if you have multiple bottles.

  • 2013 Zepaltas Pinot Noir Nunes

    Nose of blueberry, blackberry, spice and rose petals.

    Flavors are red fruits -- raspberry and a bit of cranberry with medium acidity and light tannins. Body is light and lithe. There's a mineral spine that is really intriguing. Finish is medium. An elegant expression of Pinot Noir. Probably not one that will be long lived, but tasty now and should benefit from short term aging.

  • 2013 Zepaltas Pinot Noir DeVoto Vineyard

    Pours a medium red. Nose of sweet red berries, cranberry, spice, Pinot funk, and forest floor.

    Palate shows cranberry, spice, earth and a nice savory element. Acid is high- and keeps everything in check. Should last for several years and would benefit from a 6-24 months of sleep.

    Aged in 33% New French oak, 16 months in barrel, 13.6% abv. No heat or oak noticeable on the palate.
