2014 Van Duzer Bieze Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.48, TA 0.57, 127 cases, $60. Wine Club members exclusive. 62% Dijon 777 and 28% Dijon 667. Red volcanic soils. Aged in French oak barrels, 45% new. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Aromas of dark red cherry, earthy flora and peppery herbs lead to a light to mid weight styled palate of nicely spiced black cherry and raspberry fruit flavors. The tannins are noticeably silky and there is admirable vibrancy, creating a harmonious impression. The finish is particularly noteworthy, offering uplifting and persistent Montmorency cherry goodness. Score: 92. Reviewed June 25, 2017
