VOLUME 8, ISSUE 45 - November 1, 2011
Coats and Whitney Vineyard is a sustainably farmed, 10-acre site midway between the townships of Carlton and Yamhill that was established in 2004. There are 7.5 acres planted to Pinot Noir (75% Pommard and 25% Wädenswil). Soils are quick draining Willakenzie. Second vintage of this wine. 100% de-stemmed, 5 day cold soak, aged in 25% new French oak barrels. Moderate reddish-purple robe in the glass. Welcoming aromas of black cherries, strawberry jam, violets and sweet oak. Medium-bodied flavors of nicely spiced cherries, raspberries and plums with a floral note persisting on the finish. Very smooth and charming in the mouth with well proportioned tannins and overall impeccable balance. Very good. Reviewed November 2, 2011
The Pinot Value Icon signifies a very good or even exceptional wine that is reasonably priced for the quality.
For our 2008 vintage, we blended our Wadenswil clone with the Pommard clone and have produced a vibrant, well-structured, yet complex wine.
