2016 Red Electric Armstrong Vineyard TGV Ribbon Ridge Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.74% alc., 100 cases, $70. Only made in special vintages. 4 special barrels. Natural yeast fermentation, 25% whole cluster, aged in French oak barrels, 30% new. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. The nose opens slowly over time in the glass, revealing opulent aromas of dark red and black fruits. Delicious dark red and black cherry and black raspberry flavors envelope the palate. A classy wine that is nicely composed, with lively acidity, suede tannins and a persistent finish filled with cherry delight. Somewhat reserved, and deserving of more time in the cellar. Score: 93.
