2013 J.K. Carriere Glass Willamette Valley White Pinot Noir

12.0% alc., pH 3.28, 628 cases, $24. Primarily from 33-year-old original plantings at Temperance Hill Vineyard. Whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented with wild yeast in older French oak. No residual sugar. Racked once and bottled January 2014. · Light pinkish orange color and clear in the glass. Shy, rather nondescript aroma of citrus and pencil lead. Crisp and light on the palate with subtle flavors of red cherry, orange water, peach and melon. The wine has refreshingly crisp acidity, but nothing really stands out. It is a pleasant wine, and has received good press, but I don’t get it. Score: 86. Reviewed July 4, 2014
