The 2016 Yamhill Cuvée Pinot Noir is another fantastic bottling from this famed Oregon winery. Aged for fourteen months in 44% new French oak, this evokes bright red fruits with toasty oak and light peat moss accents that connect aromatically. The palate has a lovely sense of poise, weight and astringency, with dark and red fruit flavors with orange rind and forest floor undertones. This is about as compelling as it gets for an entry level Oregon Pinot Noir. Enjoy this expressive effort now or over the course of the next decade.
