2014 Eminent Domaine Reserve Ribbon Ridge Oregon Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 248 cases, $69. Estate grown on Willakenzie soils. Clones are 115 and Pommard. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass (you can assume the ripeness and concentration from the color). Really deep cherry aroma accented with noticeable oak vanillin and spice. The mid weight, well-ripened black cherry and black raspberry fruits veer to full ripeness, but the wine is well crafted, offering a velvety ride in the mouth through a pleasingly plush finish. There is enough tannin to support the fruit load and lend age ability. This beauty was considerably more appealing with more aromatic fruit when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Atypical in character for Oregon, but reflective of the warm 2014 vintage. Decant if you pop the cork now. Score: 93. Reviewed December 13, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »
