2012 Roots Cancilla Vineyard Willamette Valley PInot Noir

14.0% alc., $40. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Beguiling shy scents of black cherry, blackberry, black currant and plum. The dark cherry and berry fruits fill the mouth with overreaching intensity and finish with flashy aplomb. The substantial tannins are balanced by the concentrated fruit load. A vein of spice runs through for accent. Score: 90. Reviewed July 6, 2014
