2009 Z’IVO Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., $N/A. · Light reddish-purple color in the glass. Reduction upon opening which resolves over time. Curiously light in weight for this warm vintage, but not overripe as wines from this vintage in Oregon are prone to be. Flavors of red cherries with complimentary oak in the background, mild tannins, and finishing with a good cut of citrus-driven acidity and notable persistence. Even better the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Good. Reviewed June 4, 2013
