Lenné Estate 2016 South Slope Select Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton, $55

By on September 17, 2019

The Lutzes chose to focus on four clones of Pinot Noir when the planted Lenné Estate in 2001, and Pommard makes up nearly two thirds of this eight-barrel program that finished coming into the cellar from the field by Sept. 13. There’s considerable charm to its fleshy and complex profile of blueberry cobbler and Bing cherry, backed by forest floor, leather and elderberry. Well-integrated tannins come with pomegranate juice

Rating: Excellent

Production: 200 cases
