2018 Marshall Davis Estate Vineyard Cask Series Yamhill-Carlton Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., 175 cases, $45. Clones 114, 777 and Pommard. 60% whole cluster. Aged in a single 15HL French oak tank. · Moderately light garnet color. Seductive aromas of cherry, baking spice, tilled earth and rose petal. Very interesting, with mid-weight flavors of black cherry boysenberry and hints of burnt tobacco, exotic spice, sandalwood and savory herbs that carry over to a highly aromatic finish. Even better when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. A terrific wine for whole cluster fans. Score: 93. Reviewed August 1, 2021
