66. St. Innocent Winery 2013 Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills, $42

st-innocent-zenith-pinot-noirMark Vlossak’s 2013 Pinot Noir offers a special blessing to those who try it: elegant red cherry aromas and flavors, a little spice to add life and a backbone that carries its fruit from front to back. Then it closes with a fanfare of cherry notes, zesty acidity and restrained tannins. Bring on the venison tenderloin, please.
