El Coro sits on the highest point of the Keller estate, at 500 feet of elevation on gravelly volcanic soil. The vines are constantly buffeted by cool Pacific winds rushing through the Petaluma Gap. In 2013, the site grew a powerful pinot noir with impressive balance, the deep, rich, alcohol-warmed sunniness of its raspberry-red fruit cooled by a taut line of acidity and savory conifer-bark aromas. There’s a compelling concentration of flavor here; its appetizing layers will become more discernable with another three or four years of age.

92 pts. The El Coro Vineyard is high on a ridge top. The name translates to “The Choir” in Spanish. The site is windy with extreme growing conditions and planted to extensive clonal variation. 6 clones including “828,” 667, 115 and a La Tache selection that creates the backbone of this wine. Aged in French oak barrels, 27% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Very seductive aromas of dark cherry, exotic spices including cardamom and refined oak. Silky and elegant, with a mid weight thrust of engaging black cherry, blackberry and spice flavors with a subtle earthy tone and a touch of umami. Good tannic bones and a lasting, powerful finish complete the experience. Score: 93.
