2009 Lenné Estate Yamhill-Carlton District Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $45. A selection of best barrels and primarily clones 115 and Pommard. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Highly aromatic with notes of dark red cherries and raspberries, baking spices and sandalwood. Crisp and juicy flavors which mimic the aromas. Not the intensity of the 2008 vintage, but more approachable and currently very satisfying. Nicely crafted. Very Good (+). Reviewed August 13, 2011
