2015 Coeur de Terre Renelle’s Block Reserve McMinnville Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., pH 3.64, 109 cases, $65. Original vineyard block planted in 1999, farmed organically from inception. Harvest Brix 23.8º, 2.6 tons per acre. · Dark garnet color in the glass. A solid wine with nicely expressive aromas of dark cherry, wooded path and vanilla. The mid weight plus core of blackberry and black grape fruit flavors have a touch of spice and black tea. There is a little more barrel contribution in this wine that offers a deep persistence of black raspberry and blackberry fruit on the intense finish. Score: 92. Reviewed February 2, 2019
