2016 Montinore Pinot Noir Reserve
Rudy Marchesi was raised on the family farm in the northeast, but he had a hankering to go west, northwest to Oregon where it seemed a better place to make interesting wine.
The Reserve Pinot Noir exemplifies the finest fruit of the estate. They choose the best blocks and the best barrels to make this wine. The 2014 displays aromas of dense, dark fruit, leather, and savory herbs. The palate exhibits juicy blackberry, sweet black cherry followed by a finish of dried fig with earth, spice and dusty, fine grained tannins.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 points
The 2016 Pinot Noir Reserve is pale to medium ruby-purple with a black cherries and blackberries nose with accents of wood smoke, dusty earth, cola, clove and underbrush. It's medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins and good freshness to lift the black fruits, finishing long with spice and earth notions.
