2012 Winter’s Hill Estate Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 250 cases, $39. 100% destemmed, fermented in small, 1.5-ton open-top fermenters. Aged 24 months in French oak barrels, 20% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Lovely perfume of fresh cherries, rose petal and bark. The mouth filling, darker cherry fruit is nicely spiced, with some added hints of red berries and sweet oak. The tannins and acidity are well balanced, and there is good intensity of red fruits on the finish. Nicely composed and easy to like. Score: 90. Reviewed June 14, 2015
