2011 Cooper Mountain Vineyards Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

12.95% alc., pH 3.49, TA 0.61, 3,200 cases, $25. 100% estate fruit from biodynamic grapes. Aged in 15% new French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. The nose is medicinal and grassy with faint red fruit aromas evident. On the palate the red fruit is austere and herbal, and is somewhat out-muscled by tannin and acidity. A very delicate, noticeable nervy wine that finishes with abundant citrus peel presence. Needs more time in bottle. Decent. Reviewed February 27, 2013
