2014 Guillén Esteban Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc.,154 cases, $25. 56% Domingo, 42% Vista Hills and 2% Meredith Mitchell vineyards. A selection of the most approachable barrels in the cellar. 100% whole cluster, native fermentation. Basket pressed and aged on the lees for 11 months in 100% neutral French oak barrels. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Really nice perfume of cherry, rose petal, and sweet pipe smoke. Light to mid weight flavors of black cherry, raspberry, tobacco and rose water, Noticeable but complimentary whole cluster input. Easy to like, with polished, fine-grain tannins and a bright finish. Score: 90. Reviewed January 6, 2018
