Montinore Estate Reserve 2017 (USA: OR - Willamette Valley) (ID# 3578)

Name Montinore Estate Reserve 2017 (ID# 3578)
Varietal Pinot Noir
Region USA: OR - Willamette Valley
Notes "Cherry, dark berries and pungent flowers on the deeply perfumed nose, along with hints of vanilla and baking spices. Broad and fleshy on entry and then more taut in the midpalate, offering appealingly sweet boysenberry and cherry cola flavors and a touch of succulent herbs. The floral note comes back on the energetic, persistent finish, which is framed by fine-grained tannins. 44% new oak." (Josh Raynolds, Vinous)

Additional Notes

"An elegant wine, this is a nuanced mix of orange peel, strawberry and sweet cherry fruit. It's entirely estate-grown and certified organic and biodynamic. It finishes with a light touch of barrel toast." (Wine Enthusiast)
