2015 LUMOS Temperance Hill Vineyard The G Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 71 cases, $48. The Guam block is 1.16 acres of Pinot Noir planted at 703 feet elevation. · Dark garnet color in the glass. The nose is quite primary, offering only subtle aromas of blackest fruits and oak seasoning. Mid weight plus in concentration, divulging a hedonistic array of purple and black fruits. A muscular wine by Oregon standards with matching tannins, yet light on its feet. The fruit is on full display on the slightly astringent finish. Gives this wine another year or two in the cellar. Score: 93. Reviewed February 21, 2018
