2014 Keeler Estate Vineyard Reserve Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., pH 3.74, TA 0.59, 196 cases, $48. Released to wine club members, not released to public yet. Made from organically grown grapes. 67.75% Pommard, 35.75% 115, 2.5% W├Ądenswil. 100% de-stemmed, aged 9 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The fruit pushes the ripeness envelope, but never finds over ripeness. Aromas of dark berry preserves lead to a rich and luscious assortment of purple and black fruits that saturate the palate in waves. The wine becomes more expressive over time in the glass, offering a sterling balance between fruit fatness and structured tannins, finishing with an explosion of sweet boysenberry goodness. Enjoyable now, but this wine will benefit from another few years in the cellar. Score: 91. Reviewed January 17, 2016
