2013 Phelps Creek Vineyards “Regina” Columbia Gorge Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 93 cases, $49. The finest 4 barrels of Pommard clone in the cellar. Oldest plantings of self-rooted vines. Named in honor of owner Robert Morus’ mother. Harvest Brix 23.7º. Aged in French oak barrels, 25% new. · Moderately light reddish purple hue in the glass. Engaging aromas of Bing cherry, dark red rose and spice. Plenty of Pinot singing in this wine with a delicious core of Asian-spiced cherry goodness complimented by subtle oak. Very suave and elegant with a markedly intense and lengthy finish that sports some ripe fruit tannins that offer textural interest. Extremely giving and enjoyable now. Score: 93.
