2011 DION Vineyard 115 West Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

13.1% alc.. · Light garnet color with slight bricking of the rim. Both savory and fruity on the nose, with aromas of cranberry, red cherry, herbs, underbrush and white pepper. Very delicately flavored, featuring cherry, cranberry and raspberry fruits that veer to the under ripe side. Nicely balanced, with tame tannins and a modest finish. A gentle soul from a cool vintage. Score: 89. Reviewed February 21, 2018
