2016 Big Table Farm - Cattrall Brothers Vineyard Pinot Noir (92 pts) @bigtablefarm @eolaamityhillsava 路 鈩癸笍 The wine is 馃挴 Pinot Noir from a single vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon. This vineyard was planted in the 1970s and is own-rooted. The vineyard is organically farmed and hand harvested. The winemaking is minimal intervention the grapes are not destemmed and native yeast fermentation. Bottled unfined and unfiltered路 馃憗 Pale ruby color路 馃憙 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of ripe red currant, strawberry, black cherry, freshly ground cinnamon, oak, reduction, smoke, dried leaves, earthy, and rose路 馃憚 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, light spicy tannins, medium alcohol, and medium- body. A medium+ length finish of ripe red currant, cinnamon, and earthiness路 馃敂 There is a Burgundian sensibility to this wine, but still clearly Oregon Pinot. I love the earthy and cinnamon spice notes on the wine potentially due to whole cluster nature of the Winemaking. A hint of floral aromas leaves me longing for more. Beautifully ripe fruit without going over. Wonderful acid, subtle Tannins, and moderate alcohol (12.9%). This husband and wife duo really have it dialed in. 馃憦
