2019 Hundred Suns Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., $45. Sourced from two vineyards: Breaker Vineyard and a neighboring vineyard owned by Joe and Marilyn Merritt that was planted to Pommard and 667 clones in 2008. Fermented with native yeast, 30% whole cluster, and aged on the lees for 11 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. The nose is instantly alluring upon opening with loads of cherry aroma along with scents of nutmeg, gingerbread and mulch. Easy going in a mid-weight style featuring the essence of classic Pommard black cherry flavor along with tastes of purple grape and spice. Very user friendly with suave tannins, frisky acidity and a mildly dry finish. Score: 93. Reviewed May 28, 2022
