2015 Van Duzer Dijon Blocks Estate Grown Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., pH 3.61, TA 0.52, 319 cases, $60. Dijon 777, 113, 115 and 114. 7-day post fermentation maceration. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 45% new. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Shy aromas of cherry, red berry and a compliment of oak. Silky in the mouth in a cohesive and forward drinking mid weight style, that features darker cherry fruit infused with ripe tannins. Nicely balanced, deft oak management, with a redeeming cherry-driven finish. Score: 92. Reviewed February 2, 2019
