2014 Willful Wine Co. Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 600 cases, $26. 80% Pommard clone from Northridge and Sproed vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills and 20% clone 115 from Stormy Morning Vineyard in the coastal foothills. Native fermentation and aged in French oak barrels, about 10% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of earth-kissed muddled cherry and cranberry lead off. Highly expressive on the palate, with an appealing core of cherry essence. Elegantly composed, with modest tannins, a satiny mouthfeel, and some length on the finish. An excellent value. Score: 90.
