2014 Native Flora The Heretic Estate Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., $65. An attempt to produce an “Old World” style. Sourced from a steep north slope block and picked at lower Brix. Aged in 12.5% new French oak barrels. · Light reddish purple color in the glass. Perfumed with sensuous notes of cherry, spice and sandalwood. Light and elegant, but flavorful, with a more noticeable acid backbone. A melange of cherry, spice and subtle oak flavors are vibrant and satisfying. Score: 91-92. Reviewed September 7, 2016
