2011 Big Table Farm Cattrall Brothers Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

11.9% alc., 143 cases, $45. The highest elevation and coolest vineyard of the four wines in the 2011 Big Table Farm Pinot Noir portfolio. Fermented with native yeasts and whole cluster. · Moderately light reddish color in the glass. Shy, but pleasant aromas of cherries, red rose petals and oak plank. Elegant and delicate, with flavors of red cherries and berries, a hint of oak and herbs, and an acid-driven, refreshing finish. A bit dilute on the mid palate and finish, but overall a satisfying expression of the cool vintage. Score: 88. Reviewed October 27, 2013 WINERY » ARTICLE »
