Battle Creek Cellars 2014 Battle Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $59
It was 20 years ago when Battle Creek Vineyard was established across 110 acres just south of Oregon’s state capital, and the western edge of this mature site is flanked by Interstate 5. A light hand in the cellar and 17 months in neutral French oak provides a fruit-forward look at the Dijon clone 667 lot, that shows bright fruit, earthiness, eucalyptus and violets wrapped in dusty Marionberry and loganberry. As southernmost rep of the Battle Creek Cellars Single Vineyard Series, it’s the most acid-driven member of the troika.
