2014 Van Duzer Homestead Block Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $60. 100% Pommard clone from the Van Duzer Estate Vineyard. 30-year-old, own-rooted vines planted at the site of the original homestead. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Shy aromas of red berries, red cherry, mushroom and oak spice arrive slowly in the glass. More expressive on the pleasing palate, with juicy flavors of dark red raspberry and cherry accented with a bit of oak spice. Noticeable mid palate presence, inviting balance, bright acidity and a cherry fueled finish. Still fine when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Score: 90.
