2011 Colene Clemens Vineyards Adriane Estate Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $45. · Moderate reddish purple hue in the glass. Rather shy aromas of oak-shaded black cherries. Mid weight core of red and black cherries and cranberries with tobacco-laced oak in the background. Well-managed tannins and some finishing length, becoming better over time in the glass. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the oak-kissed red cherry theme persisted. Could use a little more time in bottle. Score: 90. Reviewed April 19, 2014
