2011 Van Duzer Homestead Block Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.48, TA 0.62, 120 cases, $55. 100% Pommard clone planted own-rooted in the early 1980s. · Medium reddish purple color in the glass. Invigorating aromas of black cherries, strawberries, spice, mocha and cedary oak lead to a satisfying mid palate attack of black cherry and black raspberry fruits complimented by spice and oak. The tannins are firm but integrated, and the juicy acidity brings the fruit to a vivid finish. Score: 91. Reviewed June 24, 2014
