2010 Bethel Heights Southeast Block Estate Grown Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

12.9% alc., 200 cases, $50. Pommard clone planted in 1979. Adjacent Flat Block but with deeper soils. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. The bright aromas jump out of the glass right after pouring exhibiting a lovely perfume of black cherries and spice. Darker fruited with more earthiness, evident oak and astringent tannins than the Flat Block. Finishes very long with a dark cherry flourish. This wine definitely will benefit from a few years in the cellar. Very good (+). Reviewed September 12, 2012
