2015 Van Duzer Westside Blocks Estate Grown Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.46% alc., pH 3.60, TA 0.53, 337 cases, $60. Dijon 777 and 113, W├Ądenswil, Pommard and Flower. These blocks are exposed to winds funneling through the Van Duzer Corridor and the fruit develops thicker skins, richer color and generous tannins. A barrel selection. Aged 15 months in French oak barrels, 46% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Welcoming aromas of dark berries and fertile earth. Highly flavorful with waves of inviting black cherry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Impeccably balanced with integrated tannins, energetic acidity and a big-time finish of excellent length. Score: 93. Reviewed February 2, 2019
