2016 Minimus “1968” Chehalem Mountain Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

12.7% alc., $70. Produced by Craft Wine Co, in Carlton, OR. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. The nose is dusty and nutty with a hint of red cherry. More expressive on the palate with a juicy core of red berry and cherry fruit flavors framed by an arrow of vibrant acidity and a dusting of silky tannins. A petrol note may come from oak. The modestly persistent, raspberry-fueled finish is satisfying. Score: 90. Reviewed May 26, 2022
