2012 Sharecropper’s Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $20. By Owen Roe. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The pleasing aromas keep coming over time in the glass including black cherry, black raspberry and cardamom spice. Mid weight but full-flavored with a bevy of darker stone and berry fruits supported by ripe tannins. Very soft in the mouth and easily accessible with some finishing drive and opulence. One of Oregon’s greatest value-priced Pinot Noirs. Score: 91. Reviewed July 6, 2014
