2010 Anne Amie Estate Vineyard Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., pH 3.58, TA 0.59, 124 cases, $50. Release May 2013. 100% estate vineyard grapes. Pommard and Dijon 115 clones grown on Willakenzie soils. Aged 16 months in 60% new, 20% 1-year and 20% neutral French oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered and bottle aged for 12 months before release. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Vibrant aromas of fresh dark cherries and berries complimented with exotic spices. A serious wine with structural power, featuring sappy dark plum and blackberry flavors, backed by frisky acidity and fine-grain tannins, finishing with poise and richness. Still a Lolita. Very good (+). Reviewed September 12, 2012
