Trisaetum Coast Range Estate Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Yamhill County|
Impressively built and expressive, with vibrant rose petal, black cherry and orange peel flavors that take on richness and depth toward polished tannins. Best after 2025.
Translucent red. An expansive bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cherry pit, mocha, potpourri and exotic spices. Takes a brighter turn with air and offers juicy black raspberry and cherry cola flavors, along with suggestions of spicecake and candied flowers. Plush and seamless in texture, finishing with impressive energy, resonating spiciness and subtle framing tannins.
From a cool site set on sedimentary and volcanic soils, this sets a sleek, supple tone throughout the palate. It deftly mixes in strata of earth and herb under black cherry fruit. Tannins are polished and firm. It's drinking well already, but seems likely to improve further with additional bottle aging.
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Coast Range has lovely aromas of dried red cherries and blueberries with touches of cinnamon stick, stewed black tea leaves, potpourri and earth. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with black and blue fruits and lovely baking spice accents, with a good frame of fine-grained tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long with potpourri hints. 500 cases produced.
