Benton-Lane Estate Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The Wine: This dark crimson hued wine has aromas of black cherry, cassis and red licorice. The texture is quite plush and velvety with integrated tannin, so it will pair with a variety of cuisines. The flavors are classic Oregon pinot noir cherry and berry nuances, with notes of cured meats and baking spices layered in. With a little less acidity and structure than a typical Benton-Lane pinot noir, it’s precocious enough to enjoy now, but should be drank within 3-5 years.
