2010 Matello Durant Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 100 cases, $42. Winemaker Marcus Goodfellow’s first vintage from a vineyard planted in 1974 to Pommard clone, and nonirrigated. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Very light but charming array of red fruit flavors including cherries, strawberries and cranberries. Highly aromatic on approach, and comes at you like an arrow upon entry. Elegantly styled with well-matched tannin and acidity, offering interesting hints of anise and baking spice. Shows off the vintage beautifully. Reviewed November 24, 2012
