Riverbench 2011 Mesa Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley)

This bottling has been variable over the years, sometimes great, sometimes merely good. The challenging 2011 vintage has yielded something in the middle. The wine is nicely dry and silky in texture, yet it has real weight in the raspberry, cherry and red currant flavors. Doesn't seem to be an ager, so drink now–2016.
