2010 Kudos Reserve Yamhill-Carlton District Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $20. From the NW Wine Co. in McMinnville under the direction of Laurent Montalieu. A big seller at Total Wine & More in California. Aged 10 months in oak. · Moderately dark reddishpurple color in the glass. Delicate scent of black cherries and black raspberries with a subtle note of oak. Middleweight flavors echo the nose with a little minerality in the background. Sturdy tannins, yet very soft in the mouth. This wine aims to please now. Good. Reviewed September 12, 2012
