2011 iOTA Pelos Sandberg Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

12.9% alc., $38. 10% whole cluster. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Very attractive penetrating aromas of dark cherry, strawberry, spice and pennyroyal. Impressive concentration and ripeness in this very cool vintage, featuring black cherry, dark raspberry and plum fruit flavors with a subtle smoky note and a grand finish. The wine’s juicy acidity and polished tannins make for perfect drinking perfectly now but will last to 2025. Score: 92. Reviewed September 3, 2017
