2013 Lachini Vineyards Lachini Family Estate Chehalem Mountains Oregon Pinot Noir

13.3% alc., pH 3.55, TA 0.73, 1,564 cases, $50. The winery’s signature blend of multiple clones including 667, 777, 113, 114, 115, Wädenswil and Pommard. Aged 17 months in 100% French oak barrels, 25% new and 75% 1 and 2-year-old. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. A classic Oregon wine in character with fresh aromas of cherry, cranberry and herbs in a forward-drinking style that aims to please. Mid weight flavors of wild strawberry, cranberry and cherry are accented by notes of savory herbs. Nicely balanced with a compliment of chocolaty oak in the background, modest fine-grain tannins, and some noticeable length on the sweet scented finish. Score: 92. Reviewed September 3, 2015
