Benton-Lane Willamette Valley Estate Pinot Noir 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This brilliantly ruby tinted wine has classic aromas of cherries, red currants and raspberries with more subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla layered in. On the palate, it exhibits lithe fruitiness and lingering cherry and berry flavors. The wine shows extraordinary balance and finesse with fine grained tannins that provide a nice framework to the silky mid-palate.

The Benton-Lane 2010 Pinot Noir Estate - bottled already in August, 2011 - displays attractively sweet and juicy blueberry and cherry tinged with vanilla. Its relatively simple mid-palate sweetness however gives way to a rather hard, graceless finish. I imagine this will remain in good health for several years, and perhaps will even develop some textural tenderness and further complexity. Bright red. Candied red fruits on the nose and in the mouth. Fleshy and gently spicy, with good finishing breadth and a touch of medicinal bitterness. This brilliantly ruby tinted wine has classic aromas of cherries, red currants and raspberries with more subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla layered in. On the palate, it exhibits lithe fruitiness and lingering cherry and berry flavors. The wine shows extraordinary balance and finesse with fine grained tannins that provide a nice framework to the silky mid-palate. - Winery
