2012 Seven of Hearts Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.6% alc., pH 3.58, TA 0.59, 756 cases, $20. A blend from all five Willamette Valley vineyards the winery works with and includes five different Willamette Valley appellations. Native yeast fermentation, 25% whole cluster, no additions. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Shy aromas of fresh cherry lead to a mid weight essence of spiced red cherry accented with a whisper of oak. The tannins are supportive without being intrusive and the finish is bright and fruity. Score: 88. Reviewed June 26, 2014
