2010 iOTA Pelos Sandberg Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

12.9% alc. 100% de-stemmed. · Light ruby red color with a slight orange tinge in the glass. A second bottle tasted was darker garnet with no bricking. Aromas of cherry, tobacco and cigar box. Light to mid weight in style with a core of cherry, raspberry and cranberry fruits framed by bright acidity and gossamer tannins interacting in harmony. The signature barnyard note is evident. The wine has a healthy finish, a satiny texture, and not much tertiary character so should hold to 2022. Score: 89. Reviewed September 3, 2017
