Van Duzer Homestead Block Pinot Noir 2015
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Limpid ruby-red. Bright and focused on the nose, displaying an array of red and dark berry scents complemented by suggestions of pungent herbs, vanilla and dried flowers. Picks up a spicy note with air, sharpening the gently sweet, nicely concentrated cherry and black raspberry flavors; a smoky quality develops on the back half. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to the persistent finish, which leaves notes of bitter cherry and candied rose behind.
