2017 Yamhill-Carlton Incline Pinot Noir
Aromatically this wine shows notes of blueberry brioche, marionberry, candied iris, dandelion, crushed granite, and finishes with a distinct salinity. On the palate, it follows suit with loads of blue fruit extract coupled with a fresh spine of a mineral saline character. The tannins are formidable and raw which draws parallel to the comparatively feral profile of this terroir. This bolder style should slate the wine for a later drinking window or pairing with richer food and/or light decantation. The prime-drinking window for this wine should be 2021 through 2028+.
