2010 Ayoub Murto Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.1% alc., $49. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. The nose starts out with lovely aromas of cherries and balsam, then evolves over time to reveal very ripe fruit aromas including raisin and becomes somewhat pungent. The light weight core of darker cherries and berries has substantial structural bones and an appealing lift of acidity on the lengthy finish. Much better the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle showing resolution of the pungency, more intense fruit expression and becoming overall more enjoyable. Good.
