2013 Guillén Family Adrian Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

12.6% alc., 75 cases, $40. Sourced from Block F at Vista Hills Vineyard in the Dundee Hills. Clone 667 planted in 2005. Native yeast fermentation, 100% whole cluster, aged sur lie 11 months in 100% new French oak barrels. · Moderately light red cherry color in the glass. Typical whole cluster goodness on the nose with highly fragrant aromas of rose petal, spice, and green tea. Light to mid weight flavors of wellspiced and juicy red cherry fruit. Quite forward, with the slightest oak in the background and well-integrated tannins. Not as ripe or sappy as the 2012 vintage bottling, but plenty of charm. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the wine had picked up a little more flavor intensity and length indicating short-term cellaring is indicated. Score: 93.
