2014 Purple Heart Wine Freedom Hill Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 500 cases, $38. Pommard and Wädenswil clones. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Uplifting aromas of blackberry, black currant and oak driven notes of hay, popcorn and toast. Highly enjoyable on the palate, with a mid weight plus core of purple and black berry fruits complimented by spice. Inviting roundness and harmony with deft oak management and welcome overall balance. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and recorked bottle, the wine still displayed a tasty marriage of dark fruit and oak. The wine is true to Freedom Hill terroir and shows off the vineyard well. The dense, dark fruit stands up well to oak. A good value. Score: 90. Reviewed January 16, 2017 ARTICLE »
