2010 TREOS Estate Elegant Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 859 bottles, $48. Yield 0.72 tons per acre. Harvest date October 20, 2010. Harvest Brix 21.9ยบ. Aged 6 months in 3-year, dry-aged French oak barrels. Fined with Bentonite, no filtering. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Enticing aromas of red and black cherries, baking spices and vanilla. More pinotosity singing in this wine with a tasty core of redder fruits with an earthy, grilled mushroom undertone. Moderately rich with supple tannins, bright acidity, and a huge finish that fans out over 30 seconds. Still currently reserved and will benefit from more cellaring. When tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, the wine displayed more bright fruit, more crispness and an even longer finish. Score: 90. Reviewed December 18, 2013
