2012 iOTA Pelos Sandberg Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

4.2% alc., $42. 100% destemmed. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. A nice fusion of black cherry and dried herbs lifts the nose. The sappiest wine in this vertical tasting, with a plethora of dark fruits, but lacking a bit of vibrancy. The finegrain tannins lead to a dry finish that reveals a slight hint of alcoholic warmth. Drink now to 2022. Score: 90. Reviewed September 3, 2017
