Blue Slide Ridge Pinot Noir 2013


The Wine Advocate


Robert M Parker Jr.




From the blue slate soils of the Sonoma Coast, the 2013 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge is dominated by Dijon clones 115, and to a lesser extent, 667 and 777. Exhibiting great ripeness, a deep ruby/purple color and oodles of black cherries and black raspberries, the wine is complex, deep, rich, and very concentrated. This wine sees a lot of new oak, but it is beautifully sucked up by the wine’s lavish concentration and rich, multi-dimensional style. Drink it over the next decade or more.
