Eola Hills 1998 La Creole Reserve Pinot Noir (Oregon)

Someone explain this labeling: La Creole Vineyard is a blend of 96% Feltz Vineyard and 4% Madrona Vineyard? No matter the name, it smells good, boasting plenty of smoky and woodsy aromas. The flavors are immature, almost grapey still, with some unintegrated vanilla and toast from oak, and fine tannins on the finish. Needs some time; give it a couple of years' rest before popping your first cork. Joe Czerwinski
