2014 Coeur de Terre Sarah Jane’s Block Reserve Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.67, TA 0.56, RS 0 g/L, 46 cases, $65. Harvest Brix 24.4º. Soils are Willakenzie in this block and there is a mixture of six different clones of Pinot Noir. This block was planted in 2000 and farmed organically since its inception. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Aromas of blackberry, spice, game, mulch, cedary oak and walnut oil. Robust and concentrated yet soft and polished, with mid weight plus flavors of blackberry and blueberry-pomegranate. Earthy, with a bit of savory herbs adding character. The most tannic wine in the 2014 lineup, but not unwieldy. The creamy mouthfeel makes an impression. Score: 92. Reviewed May 7, 2017
