Benton-Lane Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Ripe red plums, pie cherries and mountain blueberry interplay with exotic spices, coastal forest floor, and dried flower petals on the nose of this classically styled Pinot Noir. Full, plush, and elegant textures are held together smartly with fine grained tannins and a gentle, bright acidity. The wine finishes with raspberries, dried cranberries, and lingering earthy plum.
One sniff is all it takes for this wine to win you over, with its aromas of forest floor, cinnamon stick, red fruit and spice. The flavors show elegance, texture, tension and transparency. Of everything though, it's the balance that most impresses, along with the lingering finish. It's gorgeous.
