2017 Geødesy Eola Springs Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., pH 3.55, TA 0.59, 143 cases, $80. Harvest Brix 24.3º. 5-day cold soak, native yeast and native malolactic fermentation, aged in French oak barrels, 57% new and balance 1-year-old. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Engaging black cherry aromas rise from the glass. Seamless, refined and polished in a mid weight plus style featuring dark cherry and raspberry flavors with commendable oak integration. Modest tannins, enviable balance, and a persistent, graceful finish. Less concentration but more charm than the Chehalem Mountain Vineyard bottling. Score: 93. Reviewed July 8, 2019
