2018 Adams Reserve Adams Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir

13.7% alc. (?14.3%), pH 3.59, TA 0.52, $55. Produced and bottled by Trout Lily Ranch, Dallas, OR. 5-day cold soak, indigenous yeast fermentation, and aged 18 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. Bottled unfiltered. · Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Aromas of blackberry, Italian spices, earthy flora and a floral lift. A flood of black cherry, black plum and blackberry fruits greet the palate. This mid-weight plus wine is both long in the mouth and finish. The fine-grain tannins are slightly daunting but should ameliorate over time. A little rustic in character and could benefit from more acidic verve, but otherwise a solid wine. Score: 91.
