WILLAKENZIE ESTATE Pinot Noir 'Triple Black Slopes' 2014

One of the best Oregon Pinot Noirs that I have tasted in the past year, the 2014 'Triple Black Slopes' by WillaKenzie estate is a absolutely fantastic. Utilizing Dijon Clones 114 and 777, this perfumed Pinot Noir begins with bright aromatics of red cherries, black plum, cigar box, black truffle and boysenberry liqueur. There are intense flavors of wild blackberry pie, cranberry, cigar box and Asian spices. This possesses an incredibly dense core, and the makings to be magical. Although a bit restraint right now, there is a wonderful seamless, plush quality to this exceptional Pinot Noir. While this is already attractive, it would be best to allow this gorgeous bottling at least another year or two. (Best 2017-2028) - November, 2016 (OB)
