2010 Matello Souris Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 165 cases, $42. A barrel selection from Whistling Ridge Vineyard, Durant Vineyard and Bishop Creek Vineyard. Non-irrigated vines. · Light reddishpurple color in the glass. Delicate aromas of cherries and strawberries unfold nicely over time in the glass. Rather austere and “Burgundian” in style if you will, featuring red fruits with hints of oak, redwood and herbs in the background. Finishes with mellow red cherry flavor. Elegant, like see-thru red lingerie. Some may find the wine too tight, light and tart but they may miss the point of this acid-charged wine. Very good. Reviewed November 24, 2012 WINERY » ARTICLE »
