Top Pinot Noir of 2011

3. Methven Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Reserve (2008)

« Prev 3 of 3
Tight on the nose with an apparent but not covering note of wood. There’s a lot of spice here, slowly rising in the glass but it is accompanied by plenty of minty, slightly medicinal black cherry fruit. This is seamless in the mouth, with tannins that remain youthful, bright acids, and a fresh, supple framework supporting the clean black berry, black currant fruit that shows a phenomenal level of freshness and intensity. This is sleek and tense and that presence in the mouth extends over the long, layered finish. There’s a fair amount of oak here sexing this up but the underlying wine is very strong. 93pts
