2012 Hyland Estates Founders Selection One Barrel Hyland Vineyard McMinnville Pinot Noir

13.8% alc.. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with scents of black cherry, raspberry puree, tilled earth and toasty oak. Mid-weight plus in heft, with a rich core of black cherry fruit with hints of spice and rare beef. The still-evident tannins led to a bit of astringency on the finish that had good but not exceptional length. Score: 92. Reviewed May 28, 2022
