2014 Dion Old Vines Limited Release Chehalem Mountains Oregon Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $50. Vineyard block planted in 1976 on 10 acres. Self-rooted, non-irrigated Pommard clone. · Light ruby red color in the glass. Pleasurable scents of red and purple fruits and spice. Expansive, polished and refined in the mouth in a middleweight style. The very ripe cherry core of fruit is underlain with flavors of brown spice, nutmeg and raisin. Smooth in texture, with svelte tannins and envious balance, finishing with intensity and lasting goodness. Score: 92. Reviewed June 25, 2017
