Benton-Lane Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Considerably riper than the previous vintage, it's just a bit different stylistically, though in the same quality range. It opens a bit chewy, with accents of lemon verbena and pekoe tea. Those herbal flavors are more obvious than the light red fruits, which are quickly overtaken by drying tannins.
