2009 Evesham Wood Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 1,650 cases, $14.79 (full retail $18). Produced from sustainably grown grapes in non-irrigated vineyards (Illahe, Eola Springs, Hidden Rocks and Mahonia). Aged 11 months in 10% new French oak barrels. Unfiltered. · Light in color with a reddish hue. Good aroma volume of strawberries, cherries, sandalwood and dried red rose petals. Tasty core of red berries, red cherries and red plums with a respectable mid palate attack. Elegantly styled and forward drinking with a cherry-filled and refreshing finish. Typical reserved but charming Evesham Wood style. Very good and a steal at this price. (The 2010 vintage of this wine has been released) Reviewed November 2, 2011 WINERY » ARTICLE »
