5 year Vertical of Youngberg Hill Jordan Block Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

5. Youngberg Hill Vineyards Jordan Block Pinot Noir (2010)

« Prev 5 of 5
The not-yet-released 2010 Pinot Noir (as of 01/07/2013) was the last in our vertical of wines from the Jordan Block. In 2010, owner Wayne Bailey started to take the holistic approach to farming. Interestingly enough, the notes found in the 2010 Jordan Block Pinot Noir were quite different from the other vintages we tried. Currants, black pepper, bacon and tobacco stood out in both aromas and flavors. Surprisingly soft, supple, tannins and lower acidity – yet still solid acidity – were the highlights of this vintage. Everyone agreed that this was a superior Pinot Noir with striking characteristics and a seamless, elegant mouthfeel.
