2014 LUMOS Five Blocks Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

590 cases, $25. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose reveals itself slowly over time in the glass, eventually offering very pleasant aromas of dark red fruits with cherry standing out. Black cherry flavor is at the core of this mid weight styled wine, but added accents of spice, herbs and oak add interest. The tannins are mild, making for easy approach ability, and the velvety texture is immensely satisfying. Along with the textural interest, the finish attracts interest with its intensity. Score: 91.

2012 LUMOS Five Blocks Wren & Temperance Hill Vineyards Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $25. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Enticing but shy aromas of dark berries, rose petals and spice. Attention-grabbing attack of mid to fullbodied blueberry, boysenberry and black cherry fruits with an earthy undertone. This wine is still young, sporting defined tannins and toasty oak which show up on the huge, generously fruited finish. Still a bit tight the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle but the potential is obvious. No rush to drink this one. Score: 92. Reviewed February 8, 2015 WINERY » ARTICLE »
