2014 The Pressing Plant Kick Out the Jams Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., 815 cases, $17.49, screw cap. Vintner Sheri Hood is a New Yorker who managed rock bands for record companies before moving to Portland to make wines inspired by the music she loves. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Very nicely perfumed with spiced cherry and a hint of oak. The mid weight cherry core is inviting and supported by accommodating tannins. Nicely balanced, with a deft touch of oak and a gregarious cherry finish. This wine should find wide appeal at this price. Score: 90. Reviewed March 17, 2018
