2011 Coeur de Terre Vineyard Renelle’s Block McMinnville Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $65. Mid-slope with unidentified soils unique to the vineyard. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Modest in weight but flavorful, with a charge of black cherry, blueberry and pomegranate fruit accented with sweet oak. Shows more polish and finesse and an appealingly tart cherry finish charged with acidity. Will benefit from another year in bottle. Score: 90. Reviewed July 6, 2014
