Broadley Vineyards Claudia's Choice Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Limpid ruby-red. Vibrant, spice-accented red and blue fruit and floral scents pick up vanilla and mineral flourishes with air. Juicy, seamless and energetic on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry, cherry cola and rose pastille flavors, along with a hint of exotic spices. Closes long and smooth, with lingering berry character and supple, well-knit tannins.
A lovely wine, this broadens out across the palate with flavors of blackberry jam, mocha and sweet spice. The penetrating acidity keeps it lively through the finish. It's full bodied and flavorful, with well-integrated barrel flavors from 16 months in 30% new French oak.
Sleek and spirited, with delicately complex violet, raspberry and spiced cinnamon flavors that glide lithely on the finish. Drink now through 2026.
