Trius 2014 Pinot Noir, Clark Farm

Trius is trying to change your opinion of Pinot Noir, their Pinot Noir to be exact – and if you’re like most, that opinion is practically non-existent … so they have a bit of a climb on their hands.  This single vineyard offering is a good start on the road away from Pinot-obscurity: 60% wild ferment, 12 months in French oak (25% new) and three weeks on its skins has triggered a fruit forward wine of strawberry, black cherry, earth and smoke with nice spice, good acidity and firm tannins structure.  Now let’s see how it will age, I say 5+ years will do nicely.  Price: $36.00 – Rating: ****+
