2010 Lenné Estate Jill’s 115 Yamhill-Carlton District Oregon Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 60 cases. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Brooding, darker cherries and berries on the nose offering more pleasure over time in the glass. Full-bodied and highly pleasurable flavors of black plum and black raspberry wrapped in firm tannins and underpinned with complimentary oak. Speaks more of the soil. I am not usually a fan of single Dijon clone Pinot Noir, but this wine is a head turner. Reviewed May 11, 2012
