2014 Guillén Family Meredith Mitchell Vineyard McMinnville Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., $45. Pommard clone planted in 1996. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Beautiful aromatic presence, offering scents of black cherry pie and spice. The mid weight, juicy purple berry and black cherry fruits have noticeable presence on the mid palate and envious length on the finish. A spice and savory earth component add interest. This wine has the most tannin among the single vineyard bottlings, but the tannin is fruit in origin and not particularly astringent. The lip-smacking finish completes the bright picture. Score: 90-92. Reviewed December 12, 2015
