Colene Clemens Vineyards

Estate Dopp Creek Pinot Noir 2018

Just tried ‘18, again, wow, very nice! Located in the western end of Dopp Road where the Chehalem Mountains converge with Ribbon Ridge, medium Ruby with aromas of red fruits and alluring spice. On the palate ripe raspberry and wild cherry with pepper, toasty spice and earthy notes. Young with fine integrated tannins, well defined, elegant with underlying richness, long finish ending with oaky notes. Nice value!  Just love this wine, will age well!! Great value! — 21 days ago
