2010 Montinore Estate Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.3% alc., pH 3.70, TA 0.63, 1,900 cases, $28. Aged in 33% new French oak barrels. A barrel selection primarily of single-vineyard blocks. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. The nose features red fruits with a leafy, dried herb accent. Very light and delicate cherry flavor with a minty, pungent note. The fruit seems under ripe and is currently buried in tannins. Should revisit this wine in another year as cool vintage wines often pick up a little heft over time in bottle. Decent. Reviewed February 27, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »
