2015 Temperance Hill Pinot Noir
OR – Willamette Valley – Eola – Amity Hills
Moderately dark garnet color in the glass. Aromas of blackberry, herbs, and seasoned oak echo on the nose. Very charming, with a nicely spiced mid weight blackberry fruit core. The tannic backbone is substantial but not at the forefront. The subtle oak treatment delights. What sets this wine apart is the remarkably persistent finish. Like Tom Brady, it’s all about the finish. Score: 95.
