2009 Lenné Estate Le Nez Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $30. Entirely estate fruit with same yields as Lenné Estate Pinot Noir. All five clones planted at Lenné. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of spiced dark red berries and cherries with a slight roasted character and a hint of old book. Discreetly concentrated core of dark red berries with underpinnings of anise and Asian 5-spice. Welcoming elegance, ending with a trace of heat. Good. Reviewed August 13, 2011
