2014 Willful Wine Co. Winemaker Cuvée Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 130 cases, $45. A blend of winemaker Pam Walden’s favorite six barrels from the 2014 vintage. Five barrels are Pommard clone from Northridge Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. The sixth barrel is clone 115 from Stormy Morning Vineyard. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Right off this wine strikes you as serious. A deep fruited nose features aromas of black cherry, black raspberry and black currant. The flavors replicate the aromas in a mid weight styled wine that delivers the ripe, dark fruits typical of the warm 2014 vintage. Very satisfying, with good structure and length, offering balance for age ability. Score: 92. Reviewed November 19, 2016
