Purple Hands Holstein Pinot Noir 2012
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Wine SpectatorTaut in structure, this is focused and expansive in flavor, brimming with currant and blackberry fruit and festooned with floral and mineral grace notes, lingering expressively and intensely. Drink now through 2022.
Wine EnthusiastThe Holstein designate offers pretty flavors of cherry and brambly berry, along with the Dr. Pepper character often found in Oregon. It's drinking well, though lacking the concentration that you would anticipate from the vintage and AVA.
