2014 Westrey Cuvée 22 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., $60. Amy Wesselman’s 25th vintage. 75% old- vine Pommard from Oracle Vineyard and 25% old-vine Coury clone from Abbey Ridge Vineyard. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. The nose unravels slowly to reveal aromas of red cherry, underbrush, and baking spice. The mid-weight core of dark red cherry, ripe strawberry, and raspberry fruits are backed by forthright energy. The fruit gifts build in intensity over time in the glass. Silky in texture, with moderate sandy tannins in the background and a noticeably long finish. Impressive freshness for an 8-year-old wine. Even more delectable when tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle. Easily a 15-year wine. Score: 93. Reviewed May 30, 2022
