2014 Zena Crown Vineyard 'Slope' Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills
Winemaker Notes: Symbolizing a winter evening, Slope exhibits flavors of blueberry pie, fresh roasted coffee and moral mushroom. The mid-palate has a weight that is combined with balanced lightness and a red fruit element that almost surprises the taster—it's a bit like a backbeat in a song, once you hear it the song pulls instantly together and requires pressing the repeat button.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - “Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Slope is a little closed at this youthful stage, offering glimpses of black raspberries, wild strawberries and pomegranate with suggestions of fertile loam, dried leaves, moss and truffles. The medium-bodied palate is firm and broody, revealing glimpses of the fragrant earth and red fruit layers that should blossom over time, which are now firmly encased by chewy tannins and racy acid.”
Wine Spectator- “Focused and refined, with rose petal and raspberry aromas and well-built cherry, sweet anise and spice flavors that finish with polished tannins.”
