Yamhill Valley 2012 Tall Poppy Pinot Noir (McMinnville)

Tall Poppy is a colloquial expression that may be interpreted as a backhanded compliment. This is the winery's highest reserve, a single-block designate from vines planted in 1983. The old vines bring extra depth and detail to the round cherry fruit. A streak of leather maintains its balance and does not overtake the freshness. Extra complexity comes from mineral and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2020. Paul Gregutt
