2015 The Four Graces Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., pH 3.60, 14,140 cases, $32. Sourced from The Foley Family Estate in the Dundee Hills and Doe Ridge Estate in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Aged 9 months in French oak barrels, 15% new. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Shy, but pleasant aromas of black cherry, baking spice and biscuit. Forward drinking mid weight wine with plenty of dark cherry, blueberry and pomegranate fruit flavors to satisfy. Satiny texture with modest tannins that stick out on the finish. A little more oak than I prefer is apparent. Score: 88. Reviewed November 12, 2017
