2015 Guillén Adrián Reserve Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., 72 cases, $60. A three vineyard blend (33% Vista Hills, 33% Flȃnerie, and 33% Meredith Mitchell). Pommard clone. 100% whole cluster, native fermentation. Aged 12 months on the lees in 100% new French oak barrels. Filtered at bottling. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Nice perfume of boysenberry, wood spice, and wassail spice. A little less extraction than the 2014 version, but just as satisfying, with a tasty core of spiced black cherry fruit. Sleek in the mouth, with congenial tannins that elevate the fruit. The wine ends on a high note with fresh dark cherry good will. Needs more cellar time for full expression. Score: 93. Reviewed January 6, 2018
