Bethel Heights Vineyards – Casteel 2014 Estate pinot Noir – Eola-Amity Hills – Willamette Valley

The nose reveals notes of redcurrant and cassis associated with slight touches of plum, black cherry peel as well as a subtle hint of violet and gray pepper (in the background). The palate offers a slight juiciness, a slight freshness, a slight minerality, concentration, a slight fleshy, a beautiful volume, a nice definition, a small suavity as well as a slight tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy red cherry, ripe/juicy redcurrant and touches of cassis, blackberry associated with a subtle hint of plum, discreet woody touches as well as subtle hint of chocolate and vanilla (in the background). Tannins are fine and firm. Good length. A beautiful wine!
