A blend from five sites farmed by Erath and dominated by Dundee Hills or very nearby terroir, their 2010 Pinot Noir Estate Selection displays tart sour cherry with a pungent overlay of green herbs. Speaking of greenness, this is only borderline ripe but is certainly refreshing and persistent in a relatively simply way. I would never have guessed that 35% of the barrels were new or that it remained in them for even as long as 14 months. Perhaps a couple of years in bottle will bring some complexity though I dont fancy this every acquiring much textural allure or any sense of richness. “Im trying for something in the style of older Oregon Pinot Noir, says Horner of this cuvee, “a little lighter and dominated by fresh red fruits. Well, that it is, and attractively so.
