2010 A Blooming Hill Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 180 cases, $25. 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. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Medium reddishpurple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with aromas of ripe strawberries, black cherries and a hint of mocha. Although the vineyard struggled with ripeness, the fruit in this wine is definitely ripe with plenty of satisfying juicy cherry flavor. The wine displays good concentration combined with modest, supportive fine-grain tannins, and a lasting, fruit-laden finish. Very good. Reviewed June 23, 2013
