2017 Flaneur Pinot Noir Willamette Valley -- Vinous 91 Points
Regular price $30.00
Vinous 91 Points
From Former Beaux Freres Winemaker Grant Coulter
Flaneur has made a mark in recent years, hiring Grant Coulter from his long-time stint at Beaux Freres, and then buying the iconic grain tower in the formerly sleepy town of Carlton to open a highly visible tasting room. This is a notable newcomer.
From Vinous: "Glistening red. Displays vibrant, spice- and mineral-accented red fruit and floral aromas and an exotic suggestion of blood orange. Shows very good energy and sharp delineation on the palate, offering gently sweet redcurrant, raspberry and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Shows a lot of character for an entry-level wine and finishes very long and subtly tannic, leaving repeating red fruit and floral notes behind."."
