The Four Graces – Pinot Noir 2015 Yamhill Carlton Reserve – Willamette Valley

The nose is fruity, elegant and slightly charming. It reveals notes of Quetsche plum, fleshy boysenberry and flowers (violet, imperceptible hint of lily) associated with touches of fleshy strawberry as well as hints of toasted, chocolate and an imperceptible hint of caramelization/coconut. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a slight juiciness, a slight acid frame (in the background) as well as gourmandize and suavity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy plum and fleshy/juicy blackberry associated with slight touches of blueberry, wild strawberry as well as hints of toasted oak, vanilla, chocolate and an imperceptible hint of coconut. Good length and persistence.
