2010 Eola–Amity Hills Jessie Vineyard Pinot Noir Fresh and savory at once, with scents of rye flour and lees crosshatched with red cherry, this has a classic Eola–Amity Hills profile, with red-fruited elegance and a curt mineral close. The tone reflects the vintage: pristine fruit, fresh and brisk, lifted and finely wrought. It’s a wine built to age, and delicious now. —Patrick J. Comiskey
