Evesham Wood Cuvee J Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills, USA 2016
"Brilliant red. Powerful red fruit liqueur, incense, exotic spice and potpourri aromas are energized by a bright mineral quality that gains strength as the wine opens up. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, offering alluringly sweet raspberry, candied rose and spice-cake flavors and hints of succulent herbs and cola. Rich yet energetic in style, showing no rough edges. Finishes with silky, well-knit tannins and outstanding persistence, leaving sweet rose pastille, red berry and allspice notes behind. In the price context of top-notch Pinot Noir from Oregon, or anywhere, really, this wine is an incredible value."
