2013 Radicle Vine Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
February 2017 Wine of the Month
Medium-hued, rich garnet color with salmon edges is the first thing to note with this wine. Aromas are full of red berry fruitiness complemented by hints of baking spice, sandlewood and a foundation of freshly turned humus. Flavors of raspberries and tart cherry dance gracefully on the palate, with mouthwatering acidity. There are accents of red current and graphite in the background. Tannins lend a firm structure, but are well controlled. The finish is bright and lingering, with notes of mint and iron. Eight months in 228 liter barrels, 18% new wood.
Normally $18.99 // Wine of the Month Price $13.99.
