2009 Evesham Wood Illahe Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $30. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of oak-kissed black cherries. Bright and juicy with a core of earth-toned black cherries and raspberries with an underpinning of oak, tutti-fruity, and spice. Elegant with an uplifting finish. Needs time to full integrate the oak. Very good. Reviewed May 11, 2012
