Rex Hill Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright red fruit, cherry cola, butterscotch, boysenberries, rosemary & brown sugar. This wine is friendly with a capital ‘F’. Oodles of fruit compliment a modestly structured wine, with firm acidity. Hints of port and cherry liqueur. Generous on the palate and inviting on the nose, this wine makes for good company on a rainy winters evening. There is plenty of freshness & yet sophistication to allow it to age gracefully. The oak profile is subtle & well-integrated. Pair with duck.

Raspberry seed and strawberry jam aromas with full cherry notes and a gentle cedar character with baking spice. Herbal cherry and red currant on the palate with deep, rich flavors of red berry, strawberry and red currant, a floral expression of freshly picked blossom, tart cranberry on the mid palate and a finish of creamy textured earth. 90 pts

Slight, alcoholic and young. Based on others' high praise, I'm thinking this is one for saving.

TASTING NOTES: The 2016 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir opens with heady, ripe fruit notes of black cherry, raspberry, black plum, red currant and blackberry. Floral aromas arise of lavender and violet along with tomato leaf, rhubarb and peppercorn with a hint of French Oak. The palate has impressive structure, balance, and acidity, with integrated oak notes and red and black fruit flavors. While drinking well now, this is a Pinot Noir built for aging and will grow more complex over the next 15 to 20 years. 2016 VINTAGE NOTES: The 2016 vintage was one of contrasts. Spring saw record warm temperatures push budbreak and flower earlier than ever. This heat interspaced with rain led to very fast growth and heightened mildew pressure, but 100 degree days gave way to temperatures through the summer slowing growth and ripening. Veraison was almost three weeks in some vineyards leading to a long and stretched out harvest. A short heat wave before picking pushed some vineyards to ripen and we had to work quickly to bring the fruit in before it became overripe. All in all, we saw beautiful weather, a little lower yields than projected and tremendous clean, concentrated and fully ripened fruit. pH: 3.55 TA: 5.7 g/l Alcohol: 14.1%

Tasting Notes: The 2014 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a dark ruby red color with striking clarity and depth. Primary aromas of plum, black cherry, blueberries, tobacco, violets, lilacs, iris and wet stone lead. Over time, notes of cassis, thyme, iron, clean earth (sous bois) and wild strawberries (fraise de bois) deepen and add complexity to the initial bouquet. On the palate, the attack is focused and pure with a transparency that belies the intensity of the vintage. Flavors like cherries, cassis, flowers and smoke echo the aromas. Structured with ripe tannins and good acidity, the 2014 REX HILL Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a classic example of Oregon Pinot Noir from a vintage that gave us real density on the palate with bright fruit flavors and purity. The wine has the intensity, balance and concentration to age and become more complex over the next 15 to 20 years. Aging: Aged 10 months in French Oak Acid: 5.6 g/L pH: 3.58 Alcohol: 13.5% ** Only 11 in Stock **

Vintage: 2013 08/28/2016

Tasting Notes: Aromas of violets, iris, ripe raspberries, dark cherries, rose, blueberries, wild strawberries and wet stones all emerge from the glass when the wine is first poured. As the wine opens, more savory aromas of wood smoke, cured tobacco, earth, sandalwood and cinnamon add complexity to the original aromatics. Structured, ripe and pure, the wine shows all hallmarks of the 2013 vintage.
