Baxter 2013 Valenti Vineyard Pinot Noir (Mendocino Ridge)

Editors' Choice

This fascinating, wild-yeast wine is on the lighter, rustier side of the color spectrum. It smells exotic and complex, like oolong tea, dried mushrooms and forest floor. Flavors are plummy yet savory, while firm tannins and medium body add good structure. The emphasis is on finesse and grape-driven personality, as the wine uses no new oak barrels and 30% whole-cluster fermentation. Jim Gordon
