WillaKenzie Emery Pinot Noir 2010
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Wine AdvocateLovely, sweetly suggestive scents of mocha, nutmeg, and ripe fresh cherry emerge from the WillaKenzie 2010 Pinot Noir Emery whose more than half new barrel makes only a slight, toasty impression on a palate for now surprisingly lean as well as tartly bright. This finishes with impressive penetration but will need time to better knit and develop greater nuance. I suspect - pending interim reassessment, naturally - that it will be best enjoyed by 2018.
Wine SpectatorFresh and vital, with a light burr of tannins around a restrained core of currant and spice, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 400 cases made.
