2014 Ayoub Estate Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., pH 3.50, 440 cases, $60. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. This wine is clearly an outstanding example of this vintage. Intoxicating aromas of black cherry, spice box, dark red rose petal and burnt tobacco. Revealing harmony with the first sip, this beauty is both elegant and silky on the palate, offering a mid weight array of black berry fruits supported by feathery tannins. Very giving at this early age. Even more striking the following day, when tasted from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, with an exuberant nose and enviable balance. Score: 93-94.

2010 Ayoub Estate Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $50, heavy bottle, wax closure. · Light ruby red color in the glass. Very seductive aromas of oak-kissed black cherries and dried rose petals. Middleweight charge of black cherry fruit with a citrus underbelly. Seamless and elegant, with good clarity of fruit and very accommodating tannins. Still appealing the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. A bright, crisp, light offering that mirrors the vintage quite well. Very good.
