Holocene 2018 Memorialis Pinot Noir (Yamhill-Carlton)

This is the fourth vintage for this Pinot Noir project from Force Majeure winemaker Todd Alexander. It's a single-vineyard cuvée (vineyard unidentified) with lush and inviting aromas of ripe raspberries and a whiff of chocolate. It's a pretty wine, lightly spicy (aged 17 months in one-third new French oak) and more fruit-centric than expressive of a particular terroir. What's most impressive is the elegant way it captures the ephemeral majesty of the grape. Paul Gregutt
