2012 Winter's Hill Estate Single Block Series Block 4 Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 95 cases, $44. Part of the original 1990 planting in a cooler area of the vineyard that is the last block of Pinot Noir to be harvested. Own-rooted Pommard clone. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Highly aromatic, with scents of boysenberry, plum, cherry, spice and woodshed. Mid weight parade of luscious dark red and purple fruits backed by silky tannins. Impressive attack and finish with flattering oak in the background. Score: 91. Reviewed July 6, 2014
