2013 Sokol Blosser Orchard Block Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 400 cases, $70. Made with 100% organic grapes, and an Oregon Department of Agriculture Organic Certified Wine. Estate grown, 100% Pinot Noir. From a 6.4-acre block replanted with clone 777 in 2000 in Jory soil. 25 days in fermenter including 16 days of post fermentation maceration, aged 17 months in French oak barrels, 38% new. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Deep aromas of cherry, spice and red rose petal. Elegantly crafted, with a middleweight charge of black cherry and black raspberry fruits accented with baking spice and truffle. Very clean and silky, finishing a bit shallow and oak-charged. When tasted the following day, there was still considerable oak overlay and I am not convinced that this wine will relegate the oak over time. Score: 88. Reviewed August 29, 2016
