Zena-Crown-Vineyard-Pinot-Noir-The-Slope-Oregon-2014

Zena Crown Vineyard, Pinot Noir ''The Slope'' (Oregon), 2015

“Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Slope has a nose of wood smoke, smoked meats, potpourri, black pepper, blackcurrants and black cherries—this is very savory and Syrah-esque! Medium-bodied, it packs in the blue and black fruit layers in the mouth, wonderfully sweet and ripe, with savory/earthy layers of turned earth and pipe tobacco. It’s framed by firm, fine, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and sweetly fruited. This is great! 464 cases produced.”
- Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate (93+ points)

“Vivid magenta color. Displays deeply perfumed aromas of ripe red/blue fruits, candied flowers and licorice, with a suggestion of savory herbs emerging as the wine opens up. Chewy and densely packed on the palate, offering energetic blackberry, bitter cherry and smoked meat flavors and an exotic touch of baking spices. Finishes sweet, broad and very long, with steadily building tannins and lingering violet and spice notes.”
- Josh Raynolds, Vinous (92 points)

“Tightly focused and well-structured, with appealing blueberry, sassafras and orange spice flavors that finish with broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2024. 425 cases made”
