Hawks View Chehalem Mountains Oregon Pinot Noir – 2010 – 9.4 (94/100 Pts) – James Melendez

9.4

This is all estate fruit.  This wine spends 12 months in 33% new french oak, 40% once filled french oak and 27% neutral french oak. A signature of Hanzel, Wadensvil, and Dijon Clones.

Scent of a Douglas fir forest, stone fruit orchard in autumn, pine cone, fallen leaves, and freshly stacked cedar wood.

This wine presents with balance, elegance and lyrical touch;  capture of bright acidity and luxuriant texture.  exhibiting notes of Tayberry, raspberry, definitive red rose petal lavender, hint of Ethiopian coffee, graphite and finishing off with delicate nots of thyme and cardamom.

¡Salud!
