2015 VINTJS Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $8.99. Vinted and bottled by ABJ Wines, Geyserville, CA. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Primarily oak-derived aromas of smoke, mulch and graham with a slight note of cherry. Drinkable in a mid weight style, but little depth of cherry flavor, little complexity, and sparse length on the finish. The muscular tannins are aggressive. Score: 83. Reviewed December 13, 2016
