14.0% alc., 250 cases, $45. Primarily volcanic soils. Pommard, 777 and 115 clones with a little more Pommard than in 2011. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with aromas of ripe black cherries, black raspberries and spice. Rich and full on the palate with a healthy tannic structure and a long, dry finish.

2011 J. Wrigley Proposal Block Estate McMinnville Oregon Pinot Noir

12.5% alc., 150 cases, $38. Primarily volcanic soil. Pommard, 777 and 115 clones. Aged in 18%-20% new French oak. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, dried herbs, forest floor and rose petal lead to bright flavors of cherry, raspberry and spice. Demure and suave, with managed tannins and lively acidity. Tasted again later in the day from an opened bottle, the wine had picked up significantly more richness and intensity and took a velvety texture. A seductive wine that could benefit from another year in bottle. Score: 91. Reviewed June 9, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »
