2014 Haden Fig “Juliette” Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $55. Erin’s favorite barrel of Pinot Noir production in 2014, named after his 6-year-old daughter. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Moderate garnet color in the glass. The nose offers a savory wonderland of aromas including underbrush, animal fur, forest and dried herbs combined with wild berry. Rather untamed and exotic with a savory herbal tone underlying the mid weight dark cherry and raspberry fruit essence. The tannins are firm at this stage and the finish is fine but not extraordinarily long. Definitely age worthy, this unusual wine tends to grow on you over time in the glass. Score: 91.
