2008 CAW Yamhill-Carlton District Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., 329 cases, $36. Coats and Whitney Vineyard is a sustainably farmed, 10-acre site midway between the townships of Carlton and Yamhill that was established in 2004. There are 7.5 acres planted to Pinot Noir (75% Pommard and 25% Wädenswil). Soils are quick draining Willakenzie. Second vintage of this wine. 100% de-stemmed, 5 day cold soak, aged in 25% new French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish-purple robe in the glass. Welcoming aromas of black cherries, strawberry jam, violets and sweet oak. Medium-bodied flavors of nicely spiced cherries, raspberries and plums with a floral note persisting on the finish. Very smooth and charming in the mouth with well proportioned tannins and overall impeccable balance. Very good. Reviewed November 2, 2011 WINERY » ARTICLE »
