2009 Seufert Horseleap Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

This wine is made from a blend of two clones that just happen to be two of my favorites, which are the 777, and Pommard clones. The aromatics that greet your nose after opening a bottle of this fine elixir are reminiscent of ripe marionberries mingling with the earthiness that most accurately describes quintessential Willamette Valley. The flavors carry the dark fruit and baking spice with a hint of vanilla from the oak regimen. There is a solid backbone of acidity to this wine, making it a food wine for all kinds of cuisine even stretching the boundaries of what most Pinot noir can cover. This wine is up to the job because of the deftness of balance between acidity and tannin. These qualities highlight the style Seufert has been accomplishing consistently vintage after vintage. All of Seufert’s Pinot noir vineyard selections have distinctive characteristics while continuously bringing considerable value to the table.

Rating: Excellent (90) | $30 | 13.5% ABV
