Soter Vineyards Planet Oregon 2013 Pinot Noir, $22.99-$10.99, 87 points, poured maroon trending cranberry red with a broad clear wine ring.
Smells of sweet/tart red cherry, strawberry, and blueberry were okay.
Medium bodied, good acidity, early palate smooth with mildly building tannin, and typical flavors for a Northwest Pinot, flavors that mirrored the aromas..
Finished strong on blueberry, glycerol-like mouthfeel, black pepper, and an innocuous 13% alcohol.
As a clearance item, $10.99 is a good deal, if you are looking for a bright/fresh PN (JMO).
