2016 Winter’s Hill Watershed Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 800 cases, $25. Fall 2018 release. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Exalted nose that really caught my attention with aromas of dark cherry, purple berry and burnt tobacco. Light to mid weight in style, with a captivating core of black cherry fruit. Sleek and polished, seamless and revealing, with a quenching finish that leads the drinker to take another sip. Even better when sampled the following day from a previously opened and recorked bottle. Quintessential Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and a great value to boot. Score: 93. Reviewed November 2, 2018
