2021 Adelsheim, Willamette Valley, Pinot Noir (RT93) Medium ruby with a light cast of garnet, the aromatics are compressed and tight on opening, but with time in the glass reveal seductive notes of cranberry, pomegranate, ripe red raspberry and hints of spice, sous bois and mushroom. The palate is precisely balanced with generous fruit concentration, lifting acidity and sweet, ripe tannins. Over 90% of the fruit is Estate grown, and was aged for 9 months in French oak, of which just 18% was new, meaning this is not an oak focused style of over sweet Pinot Noir, but rather a Burgundian styled expression. Less is more! This will benefit from a year or two in the bottle and should deliver terrific satisfaction in the coming years. Drink 2025-2035+
