2010 Winderlea Crawford Beck Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $48. Prominent scientists, David and Jeanne Beck, moved to Oregon from New Jersey in 2005 and bought a 48- acre property with 15 acres of vines in Jory soils. 11 acres of Pinot Noir are planted to 115, 60, Swan and Pommard clones. · Moderately light reddish-purple hue in the glass. The nose and palate feature dark red cherries and berries sprinkled with dried herbs and flower petals. Notes of forest floor and tar are also evident. On the lighter side, but juicy and pleasant with polished tannins. Good. Reviewed November 24, 2012
