Aberrant Cellars 2014 Confero Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Aberrant is a relatively newcomer on the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir scene, but they've made a big splash in a short amount of time. Confero is winemaker Eric Eide's blended AVA bottling, a blend of Yamhill-Carlton and Chehalem Mountains fruit. A gorgeous Willamette Valley Pinot Noir that shows sweetly ripe cherry and loganberry fruit tinged with sandalwood and nutmeg in a fetching nose and ultra-juicy, palpably extract-rich, polished but firm palate. Subtle notes of smoke, spice and iodine begin to show as the wine breathes.
