2015 Anam Cara Nicholas Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., 400 cases, $35. Released fall 2017. A reflection of the entire vineyard in this vintage. Clones include 114, 115, Wädenswil, Pommard and “field blend.” Aged in 19% new French oak barrels. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Fresh aromas of iced cherry, blueberry and spice cabinet. Light to mid weight in style with eager flavors of cherry, blueberry and spice, and just a kiss of oak. Forward drinking and easy going, displaying upbeat juiciness and an elegant demeanor. A “little” wine that has a lot to give. Score: 90. Reviewed February 21, 2018
