2013 Winter’s Hill Estate Reserve Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 150 cases, $65. A barrel selection from estate vineyards. 100% de-stemmed, aged 24 months in French oak barrels, 20% new. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Subdued, but pleasing aromas of cherry and potpourri. A refined and sophisticated bottling featuring mid weight flavors of red cherries and raspberries with a substantial but not imposing tannic backbone and a good acidic underbelly. Impressive intensity that lasts through a generous finish that won’t let go. Enjoyable now, but will benefit from more time in bottle. Much to admire. Score: 91. Reviewed June 14, 2015
