Montinore Estate - "Red Cap" Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2016
Vinous Media: 90 Points
(raised in 58% Hungarian and 42% French oak barrels, 25% of them new) Vivid red. Spice-tinged raspberry and cherry and a touch of smokiness on the fragrant nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering gently sweet red fruit flavors that show firm cut and refreshing spiciness. Gentle tannins shape the clinging finish, which echoes the berry and smoke notes.
