2015 Pheasant Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

"The 2015 Pinot Noir Pheasant Hill was aged for nine months in 86% used French oak (mostly neutral), with only 14% new wood. It comes in at 13.7% alcohol. I've reviewed this in the past, but I keep revisiting it because it seemed startlingly good for a New Jersey Pinot Noir. Actually, it's pretty good, period, and very Burgundian. It is beautifully constructed, elegant, velvety and perfectly balanced. It is overall a bit understated, but for this region there is very fine depth. The good acidity always matches the depth and the fruit. The flavors are classically Burgundian, dry, tinged with red fruits and a little earthy. It finishes with moderate tannins, even with a few years of age. The next day, it was still in good shape but even deeper, having fleshed out a bit. In short, this is very much a step up from what you'd expect in New Jersey Pinot Noir—probably several steps up. It is a beauty."
