2018 Hyland Estates Founders Selection Hyland Vineyard McMinnville Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $110. A blend of the four best barrels of the vintage. An historic selection from vines in the founding vineyards. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Initially reserved aromas that open gradually over time revealing rilled earth, mulch, purple berry and spiced cherry aromas. A big gulp of black cherry and blackberry fruits assembled in a mid-weight plus style. Riper and darker fruited in character but with gentle power. Impeccable harmony with a very long, sweet-fruited finish. This wine deserves a few years in the cellar and will prove very age worthy. Score: 94. Reviewed May 28, 2022
