2012 Domaine Divio Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.3% alc., pH 3.62, 150 cases, $48. Released October 21, 2015. Clone 777, harvest Brix 24ยบ. Aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Toasty oak dominates the perfume, with added aromas of spice cake and black cherry. Plenty of sappy purple and black fruits to satisfy with an appealing earthy bent. Plenty of oak at play with a healthy tannic structure. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the wine was pleasant but not provocative, with oak playing a major role in its character. Score: 87.
