2013 R. Stuart & Co. Ana Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

12.9% alc., pH 3.79, TA 0.525, 43 cases, $50. · Light cherry red color in the glass. Demure aromas of cherry, strawberry and cranberry. Very delicate, bordering austere flavors of cherry and strawberry with soft tannins and a gentle riff of backing oak. There is no finishing fruit presence.This wine is well made, and displays the signature red fruit of the Dundee Hills, but doesn’t deliver enough fruit pleasure to excite. It may pick up weight and interest with more time in bottle. Score: 87. Reviewed December 12, 2015
