Oak Valley Pinot Noir 2011 92 Points

The small “pocket” of land between Oak Valley and Paul Cluver Estate is by far, the prime site for perfectly ripe and structurally clean Pinot Noir in Elgin, consistently delivering impressive Pinot, though only 2+ years old, this is showing impressive depth and layered complexity with a savory texture, engaging pin point freshness and crunchy tannins, good energy here, highly recommended.
