2015 DANCIN PliƩ Southern Oregon Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., 138 cases, $37. Sourced from three of the seven original estate blocks. Clones 115 (7% whole cluster) and Pommard. After destemming, the fruit underwent a 7-day cold soak. Native yeast fermentation. Aged 11 months on lees in French oak barrels, 39.17% new. · Light ruby red color in the glass. Shy, but comfortable aromas of red cherry and red berry. Lighter styled and primarily red-fruited. Easygoing and rather simple with a silky mouthfeel. The tannins stick out a bit on the bright finish. The wine does perform better over time in the glass. Score: 89. Reviewed August 27, 2017
