2011 Guillen Family Dreamcatcher Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

12.8% alc., 31 cases, $25. Sourced from Vista Hills Vineyard Block F planted in 2005 with Dijon 667. Jory soils. More strict sorting in this vintage. 100% whole cluster and native fermentation, 11-day cold soak, 22 days on skins, basket pressed, aged in neutral French oak barrels for 11 months. Racked twice and filtered. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Lovely whole cluster nose featuring bright aromas of warm cherries and spice. The core of black cherry fruit is complimented by a lively underbelly of acid and a firm, but noble, non-astringent tannins. The long and mighty finish is especially notable. Score: 92.
