Andrew Rich Volcanic Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Tight with tension and stony minerality, this version is balanced by layered cherry and guava flavors that show accents of fresh basil and dusky spice, building toward a grip of tannins. Worth watching the development in the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2030. 576 cases made.
Compelling minerality defines this cuvée, assembled from undisclosed vineyards. Bright raspberry fruit and supporting acidity emphasize the fresh, crisply defined palate. The flavors are young and the wine still tight, but quite enjoyable already. Give it some extra breathing time for optimal flavors.
