2010 Lenné Karen’s Pommard Yamhill-Carlton District Oregon Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 60 cases. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Deep aromas of black cherries and black raspberries with a hint of oak-driven toast and java. A luscious core of dark red and black fruits is powerful and ripe, wrapped in balanced tannins and brought to life with bright acidity. A riff of exotic Middle Eastern spices really perks up the palate. A very ageworthy wine that needs to shed some oak, but offers a mesmerizing drinking experience even now. Reviewed May 11, 2012
