2016 Beacon Hill Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 140 cases, $28, screw cap. A blend of grapes from estate owned, LIVE certified, La Colina and Beacon Hill vineyards. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 25% new. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Inviting aromas of dark pie cherries, burnt tobacco and seasoned oak. Mid weight plus in extraction with mouth-filling ripe black fruits accented with a hint of smoky oak. Hearty for an Oregon Pinot Noir, but nicely balanced and welcoming. Score: 90.
