Plaisance Ranch – Pinot Noir 2014, Clone 828 – Applegate Valley, Southern Oregon

The nose is fruity and offers a fine tension and a fine richness. It reveals notes of crushed/ripe black cherry and fine notes of plum associated with fine touches of crushed blackberry, subtle hints of raspberry, subtle hints of chocolate, wood as well as discreet hints of violet and spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers concentration, a fine mineral frame, a fine fleshiness, a good structure as well as a very fine juiciness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy black cherry and touches of Quetsche plum associated with fine touches of crushed blackberry as well as fine hints of strawberry, chocolate and subtle / imperceptible touches of tonka bean (in the background). Tannins are well-built. Good length.
