2009 Coelho Winery Paciência Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., pH 3.90, TA 0.51, 525 cases, $40. Clones are Pommard and Dijon 777. Native yeast, aged in 20% new French oak barrels sur lie for 10 months. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Bombastic aromas of black cherries, spice, seasoned oak, brier and rose petal. Stunning black cherry and black raspberry liquor-like flavor. Palate-staining, yet discreetly concentrated and light on its feet, finishing with large scale fruit flavors that last for a minute. Hints of allspice, oak and tar in the background. Still great the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. An instant festive occasion. Reviewed November 2, 2011 WINERY » ARTICLE »
