2016 Fullerton Three Otters Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.60, TA 0.53, $22, screw cap. Harvest Brix 22.9º-25.2º. Pommard, Wädenswil, 113, 114, 115, 667 and 777. Aged in French oak barrels, 5% new. · Moderately light ruby red color in the glass. Intriguing perfume of black cherry, nut oil, grilling spices and burnt tobacco. Very silky in the mouth with a stylish core of black cherry fruit underlain with a long kiss of oak. A satisfying wine with some finishing persistence. Score: 89. Reviewed January 16, 2019
