2010 Lenné Estate Eleanor’s 114 Yamhill-Carlton District Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 49 cases, $55. Named after Steve Lutz’s mother and represents the best barrels from Dijon 114 block. · Very expressive aromatics, drawing the drinker into the glass. Aromas of fresh cherries, spice, leather and toast. Good depth on the palate, with a charming elegance, offering flavors of brandied cherries, spice and sandalwood, supported by soft tannins, ending with a pleasing lift of acidity. Very good.
