Willamette Valley Vineyards Oregon 2012 Pinot Noir, $20.99-$22.99, 91+ points, poured blood red trending pomegranate red toward the broad transparent rim.
The nose was subtle black cherry, coffee notes, and sea breezes.
Good acidity with mild tannin were carried gently on a medium body with pleasant though, like the nose, subtle flavors; tart pomegranate and black cherry were good if not particularly complex.
However, the finish was very long with that tart fruit, an escalating spice, and an unnoticeable 12.5% alcohol.
