Eyrie Vineyards The Eyrie Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
The aromas show reduction on the first whiff. Beyond that are notes of cola, dark cherry and fresh mint. The palate is full of exuberant, seamless dark fruit flavors. It's outrageously tasty-a textbook example of the pleasure Willamette Valley Pinot Noir offers.
Translucent ruby-red. Mineral-tinged black raspberry, cherry and floral scents are complemented by baking spice and succulent herb flourishes. Bright and energetic on the palate, offering sharply defined red and blue fruit, lavender and spice cake flavors braced by a spine of smoky minerality. Closes very long and precise, displaying lingering red fruit and floral qualities and well-judged, even tannins.
