2014 Winter’s Hill Estate Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.1% alc., 143 cases, $39. Stemmed grapes underwent a 3-day cold soak before yeast inoculation. The wine was aged 16 months in oak barrels. · Light cherry red color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, cranberry, strawberry and green herbs lead to a light to mid weight styled wine with flavors that echo the aromas. There is more power than the color would suggest, and the polished texture makes for easy drinking. Very forward, with deft oak management, and well-proportioned tannins. Quite typical of the Dundee Hills in character. Score: 90. Reviewed February 1, 2017
