2013 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast


On the nose, our 2013 Pinot Noir has subtle aromas of pomegranate juice, hoisin plum sauce, clove, Hibiscus, tea Leaves, cocoa nibs, rose petals, olallieberry, Chinese 5 spice, and brown sugar. On the palate, the wine has a plush entry, typical refined tannins we’ve consistently come to expect from Reuling Vineyard, great mid-palate weight and structure and incredibly focused, balanced acid that makes the mouth salivate and a complete finish that resonates in the mouth…a harmonious blend of three clones. [Full technical notes].

The 2013 Pinot Noir is also part of the 6-bottle Pinot Noir Clonal Collection.

  • Melissa Vogt: Review of the 2013 Pinot Noir Clonal Collection. “[The] uniqueness shines brightly and Taylor transcends the bounds of expectations. Simply put, Reuling Vineyard’s 2013 Pinot Noir Clonal Collection is a taste of French red Burgundy from California’s Sonoma Coast.”
