2014 iOTA Pelos Sandberg Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $40. 15% whole cluster. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. The nose will wow you with hi-tone aromas of black cherry, spice and tobacco oak. Somewhat immature, with fresh black cherry fruit flavors underlain with notes of earth and iron. A modest smoky barnyard thread plies the background. There is the slightest bit of alcoholic warmth on the finish. Score: 92. Reviewed September 3, 2017
