90 Points, Prince of Pinot; 90 Points, Vinous

Elegant Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from an excellent vintage, fermented with native yeasts and aged in French Oak (with 10% new oak). Lovely notes of red and black fruit, baking spice on the nose, and a perfect balance of acid and tannin.

Light bright red. Spicy and energetic on the nose, displaying fresh red berry, star anise and white pepper scents and a hint of lavender. Nervy and light on its feet, offering tangy red currant, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that slowly deepen on the back half. In a pretty racy style for the vintage and not unlike a successful 2013. Closes bright and spicy, with lingering florality and silky tannins that add subtle grip.
