2011 A Blooming Hill Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

12.7% alc., 360 cases, $20. 100% de-stemmed, 7-10-day cold soak, aged in 30% new French oak barrels. Once racked off the lees, the wine is cold stabilized and left to age. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Darker raspberry, black cherry and plum fruit aromas and flavors with a subtle accent of tobacco, tar and pungency. Impressive concentration in this vintage. Balanced dry tannins and some finish. Becomes less interesting as a riper fruit profile emerges over time in the glass. Tasted twice. Good. Reviewed June 23, 2013
