2016 Coehlo Coehlo Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., pH 3.62, TA 0.58, RS 0.3 g/L, 94 cases, $45. 50% 777 and 50% Pommard clones. Harvest Brix 22.5º. 100% de-stemmed, 3 to 5-day cold soak, 100% malolactic fermentation. Aged in French oak barrels, 25% new for 14 months and in stainless steel for 2 months. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Soaring aromas of black cherry infused with gentle oak-driven notes of spice and vanilla. The luscious fruit veers to the ripe side, but the flavors of black cherry, pomegranate and blackberry are captivating. Silky in the mouth, with impressive intensity and length and a giving finish. This wine was considerably more harmonious when tasted from an opened bottle later in the day. The richest of the three 2016 Pinot Noirs. Score: 94. Reviewed June 9, 2018 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2009 Coelho Winery Paciência Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., pH 3.90, TA 0.51, 525 cases, $40. Clones are Pommard and Dijon 777. Native yeast, aged in 20% new French oak barrels sur lie for 10 months. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Bombastic aromas of black cherries, spice, seasoned oak, brier and rose petal. Stunning black cherry and black raspberry liquor-like flavor. Palate-staining, yet discreetly concentrated and light on its feet, finishing with large scale fruit flavors that last for a minute. Hints of allspice, oak and tar in the background. Still great the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. An instant festive occasion. Reviewed November 2, 2011 WINERY » ARTICLE »
