Denison Cellars 2011 Tête de Cuvée Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $48
Tim Wilson didn’t produce a Kiff Vineyard bottling from this cool vintage, but he harvested it on Nov. 4 to play a significant role in this blend with the Johnson Ridge fruit taken a week earlier for the McMinnville, Ore., winery. Eleven months in French barrels makes for aromas of red currant jam, black cherry, plum and Chinese five-spice powder, followed by black currant, plum juice and ripe cherry flavors. Pleasing acidity will make this a tasty fit with trout, mushroom risotto and artisan pizza.
