Neely Upper Picnic Pinot Noir | Spring Ridge Vineyard 2011 / 750 ml.

Item#: 79317

VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2014
The 2011 Pinot Noir Upper Picnic emerges from an own-rooted parcel planted in 1981. Rich and textured in the glass, the 2011 boasts superb depth for the year. Cinnamon, cloves, dried rose petal, mint and leather wrap around a core of expressive fruit in a hauntingly beautiful, vivid Pinot that delivers the very best of the vintage. There is so much to like here, including the wine’s effortless, deceptive structure and depth.

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Tight, with a gritty, earthy edge to the firm strawberry, dark berry, violet, spice and cedar notes, gaining depth and ending with a persistent finish. Should gain with age. Drink now through 2022. 1,314 cases made.

A flashy style, accented by spicy, toasty oak, this features a tight, dense mix of red and dark berry fruit at the core. Comes together on the finish, revealing sharply focused oak and berry details. Long and persistent. Drink now through 2022. 275 cases made.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Dec 2014
Made from Dijon clones 777 and 667, the 2011 Pinot Noir is a larger cuvée, coming across with fresher acidity and an even brighter style than the 2010. A successful effort for the vintage, it displays lots of plum, red fruits (especially currants and cherries), underbrush and loamy soil notes. Medium-bodied and juicy, it should drink well for 6–8 years.
