2014 Point North Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.55, TA 0.58, $21.99. Produced and bottled by Sean Minor, American Canyon, Napa County, CA. A blend of grapes from vineyards in the Willamette Valley and Umpqua Valley. 100% de-stemmed, 2-day cold soak, fermented in open-top bins and stainless steel fermenters, and aged 6 months in French oak barrels, 20% new. · Very light ruby red color in the glass. Very shy aromas of red cherry and berry with cozy oak. Light in weight and somewhat austere, offering the essence of oak-infused cherry flavor and gossamer tannins. A simple wine that probably would taste best slightly chilled. Score: 86. Reviewed September 24, 2017
