2015 "Flight Risk" Pinot NoirWillamette Valley
96 points • JEB DUNNUCK • "California: Exuberant, Powerful 2015's" January 2018. Made all from the Pommard clone and aged 14 months in new French oak, the 2015 Pinot Noir Flight Risk shows more red fruits as well as a pretty, elegant, complex style. Crushed herbs, candied violets and spice nuances all flow to a medium-bodied, pure Pinot Noir that's perfectly balanced and silky on the palate. This is unquestionably the Burgundy lovers Pinot Noir in the lineup and it should continue drinking brilliantly for 10-15 years.
