Belle Fiore Estate Winery 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir, Rogue Valley, $37

By on February 3, 2022

Rob Folin, who spent seven years in the cellar at famed Domaine Serene in the Dundee Hills, arrived at Belle Fiore in spring 2018 and took these eight barrels of reserve Pinot Noir across the finish line for this winery’s fourth Platinum in the past three years. Its bold nose of red fruit and spice gets a rub of pine pitch, and the melange of blackberry, cherry and chai components blossom on the palate. Rewarding tannins, a pinch of moist earth and a pop of Rainier cherry provide luminosity to the finish. Award: Denver International (gold).

Rating: Platinum, 93 points

Production: 309 cases
